Candy Cornucopia Earrings

PROJECT E8029
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Circular brick stitch hoops deliciously complement the candy corn charms in these earrings using a Halloween color palette of Miyuki Delica seed beads woven onto Beadalon Quick Links.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. If you are new to circular brick stitch, please watch the video: How to do Circular Brick Stitch on the Interior of a Form. Using what you have learned in the video, begin by cutting 4 feet of beading thread, or as much as you are comfortable working with, and thread your needle. Tie the thread onto your link as shown in the video.
  2. Follow along with the video to create five layers of brick stitch, working your way inward on the link in the following order: Black, Orange, Yellow, White, Black (see photo for reference). Tie off and weave in your thread.
  3. To hang your candy corn charm, open a 5mm jump ring (the jump ring that comes with your candy corn charm will work). Slide on your brick stitch link by gently fitting the jump ring between two black seed beads along the edge of your link. Then slide on the loop of your charm so that the charm lays against the brick stitch facing forward.
  4. Finally, use pliers to open the bottom loop of your earring hook the same way you would open a jump ring, and attach it to your completed earring. Close the loop. Enjoy!
