Instructions

  1. If you are not already familiar with how to bead weave a triangle, please watch our instructional video before proceeding.
  2. Create two triangles (one per earring) using the following pattern:
  3. two rows of the 11/0 muscat galvanized copper Miyuki Delicas
  4. two rows of the 11/0 galvanized matte dark mint green Miyuki Delicas
  5. two more rows of 11/0 muscat galvanized copper Miyuki Delicas
  6. two rows of the 11/0 galvanized matte eggplant purple Miyuki Delicas
  7. two more rows of 11/0 muscat galvanized copper Miyuki Delicas.
  8. Tie off your thread and weave in the remainder.
  9. Thread two head pins through two of the corner beads on a finished triangle, so that the head pins angle up toward each other.
  10. Onto both head pins, thread one inch of alternating Delicas in the copper, mint, and eggplant colors.
  11. Create a wrapped wire loop on the end of both head pins and trim off excess wire.
  12. Open the loop at the bottom of your earring hook, gather both wrapped wire head pin loops, and thread the earring hook loop through both. Close the earring hook loop once more.
  13. Repeat steps three through six to finish the second earring.
