Retired - Cup O' Joe Earrings

PROJECT E114
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
If you love coffee as much as we here at Beadaholique do, you'll definitely want to show your java appreciation by making these adorable coffee bean earrings.
Instructions
  1. Remember to double the instructions to make both earrings! Cut two pieces of thread at four inches long each.
  2. Thread the ends of both pieces of thread through a closed jump ring. Gather all four strands together, so the the jump ring is enclosed in the center.
  3. Thread all four strands of the Power Pro through a crimp bead and crimp it down.
  4. Trim one of the four strands off, so that there are now only three threads hanging from the jump ring.
  5. On one of the strands, thread ten mixed seed beads, a hematite fire polish bead, a coffee bean bead, another seed bead, and finally a crimp bead, crimped.
  6. On another strand, thread the same, except instead of ten seed beads, use twelve.
  7. On the final strand, do the same as the first two, except this time thread fourteen seed beads.
  8. Trim off all excess thread. To make sure the beads are securely on the thread, you may want to put a tiny dab of E6000 glue on the very end of each crimp bead.
  9. To finish the earring, gently open the loop on the earring hook the way you would open a jump ring and thread it through the closed jump ring containing your three beaded threads. Gently close the loop once again.
