Happy weekend, dear friends! Wanna making something special for the coming Valentine’s Day? Now, I will share a pair of glass bead drop earrings with you all. May you can get some inspirations from it. Now, let’s see~
Supplies you will need in making the simple beaded earrings:
6mm Purple Faceted Glass Beads
4mm Transparent Glass Beads
12mm Red Gemstone Beads
25mm Black Bugle Beads
2mm Red Glass Seed Beads
Silver Earring Hooks
10x15mm Black Glass Drop Beads
0.3mm Jewelry Wire
Round Nose Plier
Step 1: Snick off a long piece of jewelry wire (with a length about 70cm), slide 4 25mm black bugle beads and 4 4mm transparent glass beads to the wire as pictured. Cross one end of the wire through a glass bead and tighten up.
Step 2: slide a black bugle bead to each wire, cross them through the 2 glass beads respectively, then slide 2 black bugle beads to the 2 wire, and cross one end through a bugle bead and tighten up.
Step 3: Slide 2 4mm glass beads to the 2 wires, cross the 2 wires through the black bugle bead as pictured. Repeat above step to add other more glass beads and tighten up as pictured.
Step 4: Repeat above steps to make the 3rd beaded layer as shown in the picture.
Step 5: Cut a piece of jewelry wire, cross it through a glass bead, then slide another glass bead to the 2 ends of the wire, add a 6mm purple glass bead and cross the wire from the hole.
Step 6: Slide 3 purple glass beads and 3 red seed beads to the 2 ends of the wire, and cross them through a purple glass bead and tighten up. Slide a transparent glass bead to the 2 wires, cross them through a 4mm glass bead below in the corner and snick off the redundant wires.
Step 7: Slide a black glass drop bead to a headpin, make a loop at the other end of this headpin, connect it with the bead pattern and attach an earring hook as pictured.
Step 8: Snick off a short piece of jewelry wire, cross it from a purple glass bead, slide both wire a 12mm red gemstone bead, and cross the wires through a purple glass bead below it, then thread the wires along the beads.
