hi this is Rachel with beadaholique I'm on to show you how to make the Lisette earrings with Czech glass snippets and thread Sookie crystal rose Monte's this is a bead woven earring and it features two circular clusters and the design was inspired by these Czech glass nib bit beads so I'm just going to show you them before we get started these are two whole beads and they have a wide end and a tapered end and they kind of remind me of a kernel of corn or a slice of pie and they have two holes down the side so they're really fun to play with and really great for bead weaving these come in lots of beautiful finishes that Czech glass beads are known for I'll just point out a few of them up here we have transparent gold luster we have matte metallic bronze iris and there's lots of beautiful colors in this finish we have Siam Ruby Picasso we have opaque pink luster okay prairie green and matte metallic silver just to name a few and these beads do to their shape kind of naturally want to nestle into a circular pattern so I'm going to show you how to make the companion to this earring and for that you will need some two whole niblets beads and this lustrous opaque amethyst color you'll need some stir s key crystal Rose Monti beads and missus size FS 30 and the color is crystal paradise shine you'll need some Toho Demi round beads in two sizes this is 11 oh and eight oh you'll need some 4 millimeter jump rings some earring hooks you'll need some fire lime and needle you'll need some thread snips and I'm using two pairs of flat nose pliers but you can also use flat nose and round nose so let's get started so the first thing you want to do is cut a link of fireline thread I cut about two feet and I went ahead and threaded my beading needle and now you want to start stringing your beads so first string one nib bit by the inner hole at the narrow end and 1-800 oho dummy round and you'll repeat that six times so it'll give you a total of fourteen beats on your thread I love the way this color of Demi Ram matches the nib bits this color called luster hydrangea and it's really beautiful okay so now I'm going to slide my beads down almost to the end of my thread leaving a little bit of a tail and I'm going to bring my thread around and close these beads up into a circle and I'm going to tie a square knot I'm going to make it a double knot to make sure it's nice and secure all right so now your beads are close up into a circle and I'm just going to sew into the adjacent couple of beads just to pull that knot into the bead and hide it I'm going to make sure that my thread is now coming out of one of the Demi round beads so from here take one Strauss key crystal Rosemont II and string the first channel if you look on the back these beads have two channels so just string straight across I'm just going to bring that across this little circular cluster so that the Rosemont II is laying in the middle and I'm going to sew into another Demi round bead on the other side of the cluster and I'm also going to sew through the adjacent nib bit bead and so now the first channel of this Rosemont II is strung and secured in the cluster I'm just going to keep sewing around through the next few beads in this cluster because I want my thread to be coming out where the opening of the second channel of the Rosemont is so it looks like I'm there now and I'm just going to poke my needle through this second channel and now I've ended up on the other side of my cluster and so I'm going to sew around again just put my needle into one of these Demi rounds and the adjacent mid bit and pull and now my Rosemont a is secured through both of its channels so now my thread up coming out of one of these mid bits and I'm going to step up and so through the outer hole of this bead and over here I'm going to pick up two 1102 ho dummy rounds and I'm going to sew into the next outer hole of that adjacent mid bit and I'm going to repeat this almost all the way around so two more eleven no dummy rounds and through the adjacent mid bit you're just sewing around in a circle okay so when you get to the last opening between the last two nib bits you're going to sew one 800 ton around instead of the two eleven O's and sew into the adjacent knit bit and this will form kind of a a bead jump ring we are going to attach your second circular cluster and then I'm just going to sew around to the next few beads and I'm going to tie off and weave in my thread tail I'm just going to make a little knot and pull it nice and tight and so for the next couple of beads just to hide the knot and now I'm going to cut off my tail and I'm actually going to do almost the same thing on the other thread tail here just going to string my needle on and this is from the beginning of this piece so I'm just going to make a very tiny not so into the adjacent bead which is the inner hole of this next nib bit and I'm going to cut off this thread tail and now your first cluster is done so next I'm going to show you how to make the second cluster so I've gone ahead and cut another length of fireline about two feet and we're going to start the second cluster almost the same way we started the first we're going to string one nib bit through the narrow side of the bead followed by one Toho Demi round bead inside a toe and we're going to repeat this five more times for a total of 12 beads for this cluster okay so when you have all of your beads strung once again slide them down almost to the end of your thread leaving a little bit of a tail and just like the first time bring them around in a circle and tie a knot and make it a nice secure knot and now take your thread and so through the next couple of beads just to pull the knot inside and hide it and again I'm going to make sure my thread is coming out of one of the deme rounds and at this point I'm going to pick up another stroke ski crystal Rosemont II and slide it down so it's sitting in the middle of the beaded cluster and I'm going to see where my thread comes out and so into a demi round bead on the other side and I'm also going to let my needle go through the next nib bit bead and the next Demi round bead make sure not to get tangled and this is a slightly smaller beaded cluster so at this point your thread should be coming out right about where that second channel of the Rosemont is so go ahead and string through that second channel and the Rosemont II will sit just a little bit above your beaded cluster I'm going to sew through the next couple of jacent beads to secure the Rosemont II in place and so through the next mid bit because now like last time you want to step up on this mid bit bead and sew the opposite way through the outer hole over here I'm going to pick up to 11 o Delhi round beads they're so tiny I'm going to sew through the outer hole of the adjacent mid bit and again since this cluster is a little bit smaller we're going to do something different we also want to be able to join this cluster both to the larger cluster we just made and to the earring hook so over here I'm going to string 111 Oh Demi round 1 800 and 111 oh and so through the outer hole of the adjacent nib bin and now following the beads around I'm going to string 211 Oh Demi round and again 211 el push out for your thread tail and now we're across from where we strung those three dummy rounds so we're going to do that pattern again so string one 1101 a toe and 111 oh and so into the adjacent mid bit and with the remaining hole between the mid bits to more 11 O's so there you go that's the second cluster I'm going to go ahead and tie off and weave in my thread tail just making a little knot and and hide the knot by sewing through the next couple of beads I'm going to cut off my thread tail and we started with a knot on the thread tail so you can weave around and weave in your thread tail some or just cut it off here so now we're going to join these two clusters and we'll do that by taking a jump ring this is just a thin four millimeter jump ring open that jump ring and we're going to use this eight o tuhoe dummy around on the outer ring from the first cluster and just slide that jump ring through there and we're also going to slide on one of the a toe dummy rounds on the outer ring of the second cluster that we just did and we're just going to close this jump ring so these a tow dummy Rams just create a nice natural beaded join for these two beaded clusters now we're going to take another jump ring open that up with your pliers and this one we're going to string onto the a toe Demi round on the other end of your second beaded cluster this will be to join your earring hook so just close up your jump ring just need to line up a little bit and now take one of your earring hooks I'm using these cool leverback earrings so you just slide the piece onto the earring hook so I'm going to just slide the end of the hook onto this jump ring and it Nestle's right in this premade loop and your earring is done so that is how to make the lisette earrings featuring check last knit bit beads and Sourav ski crystal rose
