Boho Seed Bead Earrings


About this design:

Wire wrap a mix of seed beads, Czech glass, and gemstones into these open drop pendants to create unique statement earrings.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • wire frame drop (2)
  • silver ear wire (2)
  • 26 or 28 gauge silver wire
  • 3mm silver fire polished Czech glass
  • 11/0 turquoise seed beads
  • 11/0 gold seed beads
  • Pink Rhodochrosite Chips

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin by wrapping a piece of wire (the piece should be at least 3-4" long) around the bottom side of the frame a few times until secure. String on 8 of the silver Czech glass beads and wrap the wire around the opposite side of the frame. Wrap the remaining wire around each bead & the bottom of the frame to secure the beads to the bottom.
Step 2:
Repeat step 1, except you'll string on 7 silver beads, and you don't have to wrap the wire back around between each bead. Repeat 4 more times with three rows of seed beads and the top row will be the chips. Finish by sliding the hoop of the frame onto the ear wire.
