Retired - Maroon Spectrum Earrings

PROJECT E8074
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
An ombre palette of plums and pinks embellishes these Centerline earrings using the Miyuki Delica 11/0 Marooned bead mix. The design frames a lush 8mm Mulberry Swarovski Pearl accent bead.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To see a similar technique, please watch the video: How to Add Beads to a Centerline Medallion Pendant Charm. Based on what you have learned in the video, use scissors to cut 3 feet of grey Nymo, and thread your big eye needle. For this project, you will be using the Miyuki Delica 11/0 Marooned bead mix. String your beads onto the Centerline octagon pendant in an ombre pattern as follows: dark plum, deep red, dark pink, light pink (see photo for reference). Each woven square will contain three rows of 3 beads, for a total of 9 beads in each section. Repeat this step to fill in all eight sections on your pendant.
  2. Tie off your thread and add glue to your knots, as shown in the video.
  3. To hang your Swarovski Pearl: Onto a 24 gauge head pin, slide one 8mm Mulberry Swarovski Pearl bead. Above the bead, make a wrapped wire loop. Note: slide the loop onto the top center hole of the interior of your Centerline pendant before closing the wrap (see photo for reference).
  4. Finally, use pliers to open the loop of your earring hook, and slide on the top loop of your Centerline pendant. Close the loop of your earring hook. All done!
