Janine Earrings

PROJECT E1101
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Mixed metals and tiny hex cut seed beads give these earrings a definite glamorous feel.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. You will need to tie off and add new thread as you weave this project. If you are not familiar with how to do this, watch this video before you begin.
  2. Begin by making a strip of ladder stitch 19 beads wide, with the first three and last three beads steel and the center beads gold.
  3. Working off of one side of your ladder stitch, continue in brick stitch. The first and last three beads in each row should be steel, with the center beads gold. Allow the brick stitch to do it's natural decrease each row, not adding any increases. Continue until your last row, which has just two steel beads. See photo for reference.
  4. Now flip your piece over. Add a new thread and work in brick stitch off of this side as you did for the first to complete the diamond shape. When you finish your last row, do not tie off your thread yet.
  5. Make sure that the loop on your earring post is all the way closed. Thread your needle through the loop and back down through the next bead. On the back side, go back up through the other bead and repeat this thread path a few times.
  6. Tie off and weave in your threads.
