Blue Horizon Earrings

PROJECT E2271
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Get lost in a blue horizon of seed beads in this graduated Centerline earring design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Add Rows of Beads to a Centerline Pendant. In this video you will see how to add the Miyuki Delicas using the Nymo thread. For this pattern, you can choose your favorite four colors of the blue mix to showcase in each row. I chose to work from darkest to lightest creating a graduated pattern.
  2. Once you are done adding your beads, take one eye pin and string on one 4mm bead. Make a simple wire loop with the loops facing perpendicular.
  3. Open the loop of one end of the eye pin, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to the loop of the pendant. Move to the other side of the eye pin and open the loop and attach it to the loop of the earring finding.
