Be Still My Heart Earrings

PROJECT E2429
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
These brick stitch heart earrings are the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day!
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 Bead Weave Circular Brick Stitch Around a Ring. From what you learned in this video, cut off 3 feet of thread and tie it onto the heart frame towards the top left of the heart. Please note, you want to start where the jump ring will be attached (See Photo of Finished Design). Then add two beads and begin your brick stitch as seen in the video. Add 36 beads total.
  2. Then go down through the first bead you strung and back up through the last bead you added. Pick up one bead and thread your needle back through the first bead so the bead you just picked up sits on top. Tie off your thread.
  3. Then open one jump ring and attach it to the bead you just added and to one earring post.
  4. Finally add one earring back to finish the design.
