Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
These simple teardrop earrings feature the Czech glass dagger beads in a fun feathered design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut off 6" of beading wire and place a bead stopper about 2" from one end.
  2. Thread onto the wire 1 gold crimp tube, 15 gold seed beads, 9 Czech glass peacock beads and 15 gold seed beads.
  3. Thread the end of the wire through the crimp tube forming a loop with the wire. Remove the bead stopper.
  4. Now that you have both ends of your wire going up through the crimp tube, pull them tight and loop both tails through the front of the earring finding and back down through the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Snip off the tails of the remaining wire.
  5. Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube. Close the crimp cover.
  6. All you have left is to add an earring back to your earring and you are ready to wear it.
