Ahoy! On to a new adventure! In this tutorial Monika Wojdyła will show you how to make round beaded earrings. The earrings are perfect for those of you who like simple, but extraordinary jewellery. Important! This jewellery is very addictive so you won’t settle for only one pair – you may use a variety of colours to make a completely different style of jewellery. Let’s do this!

SuperDuo beads provide a wide range of combination and possibilities. You may create very complicated jewellery with them, but they are also perfect for simple projects. Today, I will show you how to use these beads in a simple, yet fun project. Monika xx

Step 1

String 20 x SuperDuo and 20 x seed beads alternately.

Step 1

Step 2

Close the circle. Tie knots using both thread endings. Pull the threads tightly to tighten your work.

Step 1

Step 3

Thread in the shorter thread and pass the needle through all the strung beads. You may tie a knot again and trim – the thread won’t disturb you.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4

Thread in the longer thread. I usually pass the needle through the beads once again to tighten the circle and I finish the circle right behind the SuperDuo bead.

Step 1

Step 5

The thread comes out of the bottom hole of the SuperDuo bead so pass the needle through the top hole of this bead.

Step 1

Step 6

String 1 x SuperDuo and pass through the next SuperDuo bead. Continue until you have completed the whole row. You may not finish the circle as you have reached the last bead – instead, pass the needle through a few beads to make your work tight.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

Pass the needle through the top hole of the SuperDuo bead of the new row.

Step 1

Step 8

Fill in the gaps between SuperDuo beads with FirePolish beads. I like my earrings to be tight, so I pass the needle through the beads once again.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

The thread should come out of the FirePolish bead. String 5 seed beads (you may attach the earring wire now, if you like). Pass the needle through the next FirePolish bead to make a loop for the earring. You may finish your work now - tie a knot and pass through several beads so that it won’t unravel.

Step 1

Step 10

…or, like me, pass the needle through all the beads of the last row once again, pass through the first two and two last beads of the loop (omit the middle one), tie a knot and finish your work.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

The earrings are finished! I mean, one J. Repeat all the steps to make the second earring.
