Honeycomb Beaded Bead Earrings

PROJECT E837
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
The Honeycomb Beaded Bead earrings are fun statement earrings that are both dramatic and elegant. The bead woven focal hangs from a sterling silver beading chain that has been looped around and suspended from a Shepherds Crook ear wire.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To make the focal for this earring, please watch the video: How to Make a Beaded Bead with 2-Hole Honeycomb Beads. Through the course of the video, you will learn step by step how to bead weave the beaded bead and trap that larger Swarovski faux pearl inside.
  2. After you have completed your beaded bead, set it aside while you start to construct the earring.
  3. Cut 4 inches of your beading chain. Onto one end, secure a crimp bead with loop.
  4. Slide your beaded bead onto the other end of the chain via the hole in the large Swarovski bead.
  5. Secure a crimp bead with loop onto the end of the chain.
  6. Open a jump ring and link it to one of the secured crimp beads loops, the loop at the base of your earring hook, and the other crimp bead with loop. Close the jump ring.
  7. All done!
