Since Christmas is so close I figured we all could use a very simple, short and sweet project. These earrings may look complex but as I mention in the video I was able to put together one of them in 15 minutes. So a pair would only take you half an hour after assembling the materials.
Make sure to pick up some very fine bead weaving thread, like the Wildfire I show in the video, as each of the beads gets at least two passes and you need a fine thread to be able to do that through the small 15/0 beads.
In the interest of full disclosure I figured out how to make these earrings after first seeing this design from Linda’s Crafty inspirations on Pinterest. If you like bead weaving you’ll love her site! The original design is by Beth Clark and she has a free pdf of the design at her website. (Along with lots of other great designs!)
Tools and Materials:
- Superduo beads, 6 for each earring (I used mixes called Victorian Elegance and Autumn Fire.)
- 15/0 seed beads, 37 for each earring
- 6/0 seed beads, 1 for each earring
- 2 6 mm jump rings
- 2 ear wires
- Big eye needle
- Wildfire bead stringing the thread
- Chain nose pliers
- Super new glue
Enjoy the video, happy creating and Merry Christmas!
