Step-By-Step Instructions

No matter what your day holds, these adorable little Pinwheel Earrings from PotomacBeads are sure to add a little sparkle. Easy to make and so lovely to wear, you'll want to make a pair in every color!
Using a size 12 needle on about four feet of thread, pick up four Nib-bit beads and tie a knot. Lay the Nib-bits out in a pinwheel shape.
Step up through the second hole of a Nib-bit and add another Nib-bit in between each of the original beads. Step up again and add a 15/0, an 11/0, a Crystal, an 11/0 and a 15/0 in between the second row of Nib-bits. Watch the Pinwheel Earrings tutorial with Allie as she shows you how to add more seed beads to the inside.
Add a rose montee to the center. Make a loop at the top using seed beads and crystal. Tie the ends of the thread together and burn down the ends. Add the earwire.
