Vineyard Cafe Earrings

PROJECT E2407
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate

A touch of fringe is all you need to embellish these tear drop frames with a delicate purple mix of seed beads.

Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by watching our video: How to Bead Weave Circular Brick Stitch Around a Ring. From what you learned in the video, cut off about 4 feet of thread and tie one end in an overhand double knot around the tear drop form leaving a tail of 6 inches.
  2. Then, you will begin your first row of brick stitch. For this design you will start by picking up four seed beads and treating two seed beads as one when you are doing the brick stitch. Therefore you will go back through the last two beads you strung, then continue the brick stitch by adding two more seed beads. Then go up through those seed beads. Continue the stitch until you have five columns as the base for your fringe.
  3. Then when you are coming out of the last two seed beads, add 45 beads and then turn your thread around and go back through the seed beads leaving the last one out so that it catches and becomes the end of this fringe. Go all the way back up through the beads and through one bead in the brick stitch.
  4. You will then create a thread bridge and go down through the next section of brick stitch, but you will only be going through the outer most bead. Then this strand of fringe will be 40 beads.
  5. Continue in the same manner with the following pieces of fringe being 35 beads, 30 beads, and 25 beads.
  6. Once you have added the last row of fringe, thread your needle up through both of the last seed beads in the brick stitch. Tie both ends of the thread in an overhand knot. Finally, string both ends down into that first piece of fringe to hide them and trim the ends.
  7. Open one jump ring and attach it to the tear drop frame. Then open one more jump ring and attach it to the jump ring you just added and to one earring hook.
  8. Note: To get the fringe to mirror (as seen in the photo), simply turn around piece around before adding the earring hook.
By purchasing all of the items listed you will be able to make two pairs of earrings!
