For these earrings, I used wire to wrap seed beads around a recycled glass bead. I love the uniqueness of the design- they'll definitely stand out but they're small enough to not be overwhelming. And the pink & green color combination is perfect for summer!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Czech Glass Gold Spacer
  • Recycled Glass Green Tumbled Round
  • Sunset Opalite Round 6mm
  • Gold 8/0 Seed Beads
  • Pink 8/0 Seed Beads
  • Gold 22 Gauge Wire
  • Gold Ear Wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Make a bead link with the Bottle Green Recycled Glass Bead, and a gold Czech glass spacer on the ends.

Step 2

Attach four pieces of wire to one end of the link.

Step 3

Working one piece of wire at a time, string on 4 pink seed beads, 2 gold seed beads, and 4 more pink.

Step 4

With the round nose pliers, attach the wire to the other end of the link.

Step 5

Repeat Steps 3 & 4 three more times.

Step 6

Loop a piece of wire through the loops of some of the bead links at the top. Slide the Sunset Opalite bead onto the wire. Make a loop at the top with the round nose pliers & slide onto the loop of the earwire.
