If you're looking for something unique, check out the Trinidad earrings from PotomacBeads. These little beauties are small in size but big in style. Anybody can learn how to stitch the colorful crystal into a triangle bezel to make a sparkling accessory you'll want to wear out everywhere.
Begin with a pattern of an 8/0, tubelet, 11/0, tubelet. Repeat two more times. Tie the thread into a knot. To make it into a triangle shape, bring the needle back through the first 8/0, tubelet, 11/0 and tubelet. Skip over the 8's as you thread through the rest of the beads.
Watch the Trinidad earrings tutorial with Allie to see how she steps up from the 8/0 to stitch the back of the earring and add the Potomac crystal rivoli.
Bring the needle to the back of the project and add a wire guard. Thread down through some beads and burn off the ends. Add the earwire and you're done!
