Quick Project Steps

Making jewelry is a fun and easy way to show your personality. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to make a pair of earrings that are perfect for any occasion. Using only seed beads, you can easily make these starry Orion Earrings. Start with five feet of thread and a size 12 or 10 needle. Thread on four 11/s and 8/s in a pattern. Take the needle back through the first six beads and pull into a circle. Add a 15, 11 and 15 and go back down through the 8/0. Add the same three beads to the top of each of the 8's in the circle. Start the peyote stitch by adding more seed beads around the outside. Watch the Orion earrings tutorial with Allie and she will guide you through the process. Flatten out the project to make sure the thread isn't pulling too tight, then bring the thread ends together and knot them. Attach the earwire to the top. These earrings can easily be used as component pieces to create a bracelet or necklace. Once you've mastered the Orion earrings, the sky's the limit!
