Purple Pips Earrings

Difficulty: Beginner


Learn how to make these pretty purple earrings using pip beads, Swarovski Bicones and seed beads.

Step 1

Take approximately 30 cm of thread using a beading needle and attach a stopper bead leaving roughly 10 cm as a tail thread, thread through the Size 11 seed bead and 3 mm Swarovski pearl, repeat this once again using one seed bead and one pearl and yeat another seed bead before adding you 6 mm Swarovski Bicone.

Step 2

Move the beads already threaded up the thread towards the stopper bead. Now add two seed beads, a glass pip, a deed bead and a glass pip, one more seed bead and one more pip before adding two seed beads to finish. Thread through these twice so they loop round in a circle.

Step 3

Tie a small tight knot between your circle and the Swarovski Bicone to secure the circle shape. Thread back up though the Swarovski Bicone and then move it to cover the knot.

Step 4

Go back through the remaining beads at the top until your thread is out the other side where you started. Remove the stopper bead and loop though a jump ring and tie a small knot around it. Cut your thread and attach your jump ring to the loop on the end of your ear wire. 

Repeat all steps for the second earring.
