Jewelry Making Beading Project: Beaded Flower Earrings

 

From my own imagination – “Roses are red, violets are blue. White and red is perfect so here’s a pair of earrings for you!” LOL!!!
Learn how to create flower-shaped earrings using tear drop-shaped beads with this free jewelry making beading project. Now, who would think that this earring is created using circular brick stitch weaving technique around a bead (you can watch a video here) with a combination of picot edges? With bright red beads and white fibre optic tear drop beads, a pair of these will surely look great on any outfit.

Materials & tools:
big Corrales bead
tear drop optic fiber beads
beading thread
small Corrales beads
Red seed beads
Scissors
Beading needle
Step 1: Cut an arm span of beading thread and using a beading needle, insert the thread into the big Corrales bead. Make a surgeon’s knot and pull the thread. Make 2 final knots and then pull the thread.

Step 2: After creating the knots insert the thread into the bead’s hole and pull to hide the knots. Then insert the thread into the bead’s hole again going in opposite direction. You now have the threads circling the bead and we will call these threads, “bridge.”

Step 3: Slide in a tear drop bead, followed by 2 small Corrales beads and another tear drop bead. Insert the thread under the bridge and back thru the tear drop bead and pull the thread.

Step 5: Going right, insert the thread into the next tear drop beads and should come out of 2 small Corrales beads. Then slide in 5 seed beads. Going counter-clockwise pass the thread back thru the 2nd seed bead.
