How to make Earrings with SuperDuo beads - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Who wants to start a beading adventure? SuperDuo bead earrings are the perfect design to start with. These two-hole beads are magical - whatever you sew with them will be amazing! We are sure that this project prepared for you by Paula will benefit not only beginner jewellery makers, but also more advanced beaders. 

Hi loves! Welcome to my next course. This time we meet atypically (recently for me), because it is made of beads. I don't remember the last time I held the needle in my hands, so I had to practice a bit before starting the course  And now, like me, make coffee, take out the beads - we'll make (simple!) Earrings. Paula x

Materials required:

Remember that our tutorials are mainly designed to teach you technique and bring inspiration, so your jewellery doesn't have to look exactly like the one in the tutorial. Don't be afraid to experiment with shapes and colours.

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

Step 1

Cut about 70 cm of thread and thread it on the needle. 

Take the sequence SD -> TH11 / 0 -> SD -> TH11 / 0 -> SD -> TH11 / 0 -> SD -> TH11 / 0 -> SD -> TH11 / 0.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 2

Pass the needle twice through all the beads and tighten. The thread should come out from behind the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 3

Pass the needle to the upper SD hole. Then add 2 SD between the SD beads of the previous row (10 in total).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Again, we pass the thread only through the added beads and the thread should come out between the SD beads. Pass the needle to the upper SD hole to 'step up'.

In this part, between the SD beads (the two that are together) add the TH8 / 0 bead, and between the 3 TH11 / 0 beads, that is: 3xTH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0 -> 3xTH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0 -> 3xTH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0 -> 3xTH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0 -> 3xTH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 5

Now we pass the thread so that it comes out of the TH11 / 0 bead. We add 3 TH11 / 0 beads to create mini triangles (picot). We go through TH8 / 0 with the same thread.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 6

In the last picot, add an  earwire and sew it into the earring.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 7

Now we move on to the TH8 / 0 bead which is in a straight line under the earwires (in the middle of our work).

Step 1

Step 8

We thread the TH11 / 0 bead -> FP -> 2xTH11 / 0 -> DROP-> 2x TH11 / 0 -> FP -> TH11 / 0 and go through the whole thread several times. Then we secure the thread and hide it in the knitting. 

Note: You may need to add more (or indeed less) TH on each side of the DROP, depending on the size of tear you have chosen and the position of it's hole. The Tear should hang nicely and not be pulled forward or backwards once added to the design.

Step 9

The first earring is ready.  Repeat all steps to create a second and they are ready to wear :)
