Lavender Garden Earrings

PROJECT E2421
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These classic brick stitch hoop earrings are decorated with a lavender picot edge of tiny 15/0 seed beads. Choose your favorite color combination to make this design suit your style.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To begin, please watch our video: How to Do Circular Brick Stitch On a Hoop Earring. In this video you will see how to do the first row of brick stitch. Begin by cutting off 6 feet of Fireline and then begin at the top front of the earring about a 1/4 inch from the top. (See photo for reference) Then add 57 beads. This should take you to about 1 inch from the back of the earring. You can adjust this to suit your style.
  2. Then to see how to complete the decorative edge finish, please watch our video: How to Add a Decorative Edge to Brick Earrings using 15/0 Seed Beads. You will also see how to tie off the thread at the end of this video.
