Beaded Christmas Tree Earrings

PROJECT E2249
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
These tiny bead woven earrings are a perfectly sweet accessory to your holiday outfit.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. If you are unfamiliar with Brick Stitch please watch our tutorial video here.
  2. To see an example of the technique needed to complete these earrings please watch our video: How to Bead Weave Brick Stitch Christmas Ornaments. In this video you will be walked thru how to increase and decrease the brick stitch as needed as you follow along with the pattern. Skip to the end of this video to see these earrings. You will be walked through adding beads to a strand of ladder stitch. Please note this is an advanced technique.
  3. Start with a row of three beads in a ladder stitch and then follow the pattern and video to build up to a row of four beads. For your next row you will need to do a ladder stitch to increase the beads to a row of nine. Continue to follow the pattern for the natural decrease. Then repeat with the ladder stitch for each jump up.
  4. Once you have completed the row at the top with two green beads, you will add one red bead that will sit on it's side to accommodate the jump ring. Tie off and weave in your thread.
  5. Open one jump ring and slip it through the red bead at the top and through the loop of one earring hook. Close the jump ring.
