PROJECT E2332
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
All you need is a pop of violet blue seed beads to make this pair of open frame geometric earrings come alive.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Bead Weave Circular Brick Stitch Around a Ring. Based on what you learned in the video, you will tie on your thread and weave one row of violet seed beads onto the fanned drop frame. Turn your thread around and go under the second thread bridge to begin adding the second row. Once you have completed the second row, tie off and weave in your threads. Set this piece aside.
  2. On to the triangle piece you will follow the same basic brick stitch with ten beads and you will decrease to create the triangle effect and end with a row of two. Tie off and weave in your thread.
  3. Next, open one jump ring and attach the triangle piece on to the bottom loop of the earring finding and close the jump ring.
  4. Open the loop of the earring hook, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the top loop of the fanned drop and close the jump ring.
By purchasing the full lots of the items listed you will be able to make two pairs of earrings!
