Light and gauzy jewellery made with natural stones? It may seem impossible, but Monika has decided to show you how to make such earrings. Decorated with subtle flowers that will perfectly match summer dresses. And they will make our autumn and winter jumper outfits look really romantic. So, if you want to make earrings with natural stones, you are in the perfect place. Sit back, take your needle and forget about the whole world for a little while.

I really love the mix of thick jumpers, subtle skirts and accessories. That’s why I decided to make earrings for myself which can change my autumn outfits. I like them so much that I never go out without them. I also decided to show you how to make earrings with natural stones. Those of you with romantic souls – follow me.

Supplies used in this project:

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

String 5 rounds. Tie a knot with the threads to close the rounds in a circle. Pull tightly. Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of a bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 2

String 4 rounds and pass the needle back through the bead you exited. Pass through the bead to make a circle of beads. Remember to pull the thread tightly all the time.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Pass through two nearest rounds.

Step 1

Step 4

The thread comes out the ‘Z’ round so string 4 rounds and pass back through the ‘Z’ round to make another circle of beads.

Step 1

Step 5

The thread comes out of the ‘O’ round. Pass through the ‘X’, ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ rounds so that the thread comes out of the ‘Z’ round.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

String 4 rounds and pass back through the ‘Z’ round.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 7

The thread comes out of the ‘X’ round. Pass through ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ rounds.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

Add 4 rounds the same way as previously.

Step 1

Step 9

And again, pass through the ‘X’, ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ rounds.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 10

Add 4 rounds. It’s almost finished.

Step 1

Step 11

Pass through the ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ rounds.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 12

While finishing the circle, string 2 rounds and pass through the bead on the opposite side of your work, marked in the picture.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 13

String 1 round and pass through the bead on the opposite side of your work, as shown in the picture.

Step 1

Step 14

It’s almost finished. Pass the needle through the beads so that the thread comes out of the bead marked with ‘X’ in the picture.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 15

Now, we’re going to add TOHO beads in every spaces marked with ‘X’.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 16

Your work should look like this now. Pass through TOHO so that the thread comes out of a round. I pass through the beads around once again to tighten the edge because the stud earring will be hung there.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 17

To tighten the earring pass down through the rounds to the central part and pass around through the beads marked with ‘X’. You can do it twice and then cut the thread. Pass up with the tail thread as far as you can and cut it.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 18

Attach the stud earring/earwire and the flowers. Use the bigger jump ring to attach the stud earring and the smaller and thinner one to attach the flowers because this jump ring needs to pass between TOHO and a round. You need to do it very gently.
