How to make earrings using TOHO beads – a jewellery making tutorial

Do you like long, but lightweight earrings? If yes, you’re in the right place. Monika Wojdyła has prepared a jewellery making tutorial especially for you in which she shows you how to make earrings finished with a gemstone drop using TOHO beads. The earrings are easy to make and the final effect is really nice. Let’s stitch!

Using the method presented in this tutorial you will be able to make as long earrings as you like. By changing the colours you will create earrings in a different style. It’s really fast to make them, so I think you won’t settle for just only one pair.

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Remember - 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.

Step 1

String 4 T (TOHO beads), an earwire and 3 T.

Step 1

Step 2

To make your work easier, tie a knot to close everything in a circle.

Step 1

Step 3

Pass the needle through the circle once again, but only through the elements marked in the picture with “X”. Omit the three not marked elements by passing under them so that they will make “corners”. I tried to show it in the pictures. You can see the thread that is placed under the omitted beads.

I pass the needle around 3 times to tighten my work. The earwire is attached to this thread there.

Step 4

Step 4

As you finish, the thread should come out of the central bead.

Step 1

Step 5

String 7 T and pass through the central bead once again to make another loop.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

And again, pass through this loop 1.5 time, but only through the beads marked with “X”. Omit the three not marked beads by passing under them, so that they make “corners”.

Step 1

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 7

Add the following loops the same way until you have reached the desired length.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

It’s time to attach the drop. The thread should come out of the central, bottom bead. String 3 T – a drop – 3 T. Pass through the central, bottom bead of the last loop once again.

Step 1

Step 9

You may pass through the last loop once again, including the drop, without omitting any beads this time.

Step 1

Step 10

Pass up through the beads towards the tail thread. Tie a knot. Pass through the beads with both threads and trim.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

It’s finished!
