Eggs in a Basket Earring and Bracelet Set

PROJECT S8009
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
This festive Easter-inspired bracelet and earring set offers a fun way to accessorize springtime. Sparkly pastel Czech fire polish and satin matte silver glass beads are strung on egg shaped oval memory wire, with a matching a beaded hoop earring.
Instructions
This bracelet consists of 3 rounds of strung beads. To modify the length, adjust your amount of memory wire and beads strung accordingly. By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat steps 7-8 to make the second earring.
  1. Using the memory wire cutters, cut 3 rounds of oval memory wire.
  2. Using round nose pliers, grip one end of the wire and make an inward facing simple wire loop.
  3. String on the top of 1 silver bead cap. Then string on one 8mm satin matte silver bead and 1 silver bead cap, this time stringing the memory wire through the base of the bead cap so that the satin matte silver bead is capped on either side (see photo for reference).
  4. Now string on the 3mm beads in the following order: 1 rose, 1 lime, 1 aqua, 1 lilac, and 1 silver.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 eight more times to complete the pattern.
  6. Repeat step 3 to string on one more silver bead cap, 1 satin matte silver bead, and 1 bead cap. Make an inward facing simple wire loop on this end of the memory wire. Your bracelet is now complete.
  7. Please watch the video: How to Make a Pair of Earrings With Beading Hoop Earring Findings. Using what you have learned in the video, open one of your hoops and string on the beads in the following order: 1 rose, 1 lime, 1 aqua, 1 lilac, and 1 silver bead cap (through the base of the cap), one 8mm satin matte silver bead, and one silver bead cap (through the top of the cap). Repeat this pattern 2 more times.
  8. Now string on 1 rose, 1 lime, 1 aqua, 1 lilac, and one silver. Using chain nose pliers, close your hoop and attach your earring hook as shown in the video. Enjoy your bracelet and earring set!
