Step-By-Step Instructions

In this video tutorial from PotomacBeads, Allie shows you how to make a pair of Paris Earrings that will compliment the Paris Bracelet to make a set that will keep you at the height of Parisian fashion.
Add a stop bead onto about twenty inches of thread, loop the thread through twice. Pick up six IrisDuos each separated by a seed bead. Go back through the four beads at the beginning to round out the design and begin the bezel for the chaton. Sew seven seed beads in between each of the IrisDuos.
Pick up two 15/0s on the needle and sew through the next 11/0 to set the seed beads in fornt of the IrisDuo. Watch the Paris Earrings tutorial to see how to add the chaton to the center of the bezel.
Add the wire guard along with a crystal and some seed beads. Sew around the outer edge of the design to get back to the stop bead and tie off the ends.
