I was inspired by the flower Iris that I saw on TV last week. It was so beautiful and I kind of liked the color. I thought it’s very unique to have flowers of blue and yellow 🙂

I was so inspired that I created earrings of yellow and blue colors, the “Iris Beaded Earrings” 🙂
Creating the earrings uses Circular Brickstitch around a Ring technique and watching this video with Beadaholique can help you learn the basics but I will post pictoral images on how to create the Iris Beaded EarringsNow that you know the basics let’s learn how to create the Iris Beaded Earrings!First, I tied a 36-inch of thread onto the close ring.
After weaving the final edging I then weaved back through several beads until my thread is in a position to create the bail. I have added 7 pcs of yellow seed beads and simply created a loop where I can attach a jump ring and ear wire.
As you weave you might arrive at a stage of your beadwork and often see that as you weave, big gaps between the beads. This is just normal because of the circumference and as the round or circle gets bigger more and more gaps will be seen.
On the published tutorial for Iris Beaded Earrings Beading & Jewelry Making Tutorial l26 I have included tips how to adjust and use Increase and Decrease to create almost perfect rounds of beads 🙂
