Step-By-Step Instructions

PotomacBeads tutorials brings you this easy to follow tutorial for these beautiful Nautilus earrings. With just a few supplies, you can have your own pair of earrings that will have you dreaming of strolls along the seaside.
Begin by threading on the shell candy bead. Add ten 11/0s to go along the exterior of the shell. Add five more 11/0s to the side hole and then add ten more 11/0s to the side and five more to the top to complete a ring around shell. Sew through all the seed beads to tighten into a continuous line.
Begin the peyote stitch by adding the gold 15/0s making sure they sit on the top of the project and don't fall to the back. Add fifteen gold seed beads around the outside. Stitch another fifteen 15/0s around the outside, in between the original 15/0s.
Watch the Nautilus Earrings tutorial with Allie as she shows you how to add the wireguards to the top with seed beads and the fringe to the bottom of the nautilus shell earrings.
