Cactus Flower Drop Earrings

About this design:

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!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Czech Glass Gold Spacer
  • Recycled Glass Green Tumbled Round
  • Sunset Opalite Round 6mm
  • Gold 8/0 Seed Beads

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.
