Do you want to add some nature-inspired flair to your jewelry collection? With PotomacBeads Tutorial, you can create these lively Poison Ivy Earrings. Using IrisDuos, Potomac Crystal Disco Balls and Miyuki Seed Beads with a right angle weave, you can add some fun and whimsy to your style.
Pick up four LeafDuos on a size 10 needle, each separated by an 11/0 seed bead. Tie into a knot. Sew through the next LeafDuo and add three more 11/0s in between each leaf. Step up to the top hole of the LeafDuo and add in three 15/0s to each side of the LeafDuos. Add three 15/0s, a wire guard and three more 15/0s. Sew them into the top LeafDuo.
Watch the tutorial for different ideas of how you could decorate the middle of your Poison Ivy jewelry using seed beads and your choice of centerpiece.
Thread to the back of the project and tie the ends together. Add the earwire.
