Green Sateen Earrings

PROJECT E7034
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Swarovski crystal pearls and Czech fire polished beads in a satiny green finish are accented by vibrant gold Toho Demi Round seed beads in these quick bead woven earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by watching our video on how to do a flat right angle weave. You'll be using a variation of this stitch in these earrings.
  2. Cut a 3 foot length of Fireline thread and thread a size 12 beading needle.
  3. String 1 green Czech glass bead, followed by 1 gold Toho demi round bead. Repeat this pattern 6 more times, so you have 14 beads strung. Bring your thread around so the beads form a loop and tie an overhand knot, leaving a 6 inch tail on the end. Double knot it for strength.
  4. Sew through half of the beads in the loop again so your needle is exiting a green Czech glass bead across from the knot. String 1 Swarovski crystal iridescent green pearl. Sew into a green Czech glass bead across the loop from where the thread is coming out of, so the pearl bead is sitting in the center of the beaded loop. Keep sewing through the beads in your loop to reinforce it.
  5. Exit a green Czech glass bead with your needle. String 1 gold Toho demi round bead, followed by 1 green Czech glass bead. Repeat this pattern 5 more times, and then string another gold Toho demi round bead. Pass your needle back through the bead you originated from, going in the same direction, creating a second beaded loop.
  6. Sew through half of the beads in the loop again and exit a green Czech glass bead with your needle. String 1 Swarovski crystal iridescent green pearl. Sew into a green Czech glass bead across the loop from where the thread is coming out of, so the pearl bead is sitting in the center of the beaded loop. Keep sewing through the beads in your loop to reinforce it.
  7. Tie off and weave in your thread tails.
  8. Open a 4mm jump ring using pliers. Slide it through 1 gold Toho demi round bead at one end of your figure-8 shaped piece. Also slide on the loop of one gold earring hook. Close the jump ring.
  9. Enjoy your earrings!
