Step-By-Step Instructions

These Forest Earrings are a great way to experiment with a variety of different beads. Using a freeform stitch, designer Bridgette shows us how to create this lovely design.
Put a stop bead on the end of your thread and add an EVA and O bead and a Helios. Pick up 3 seed beads and come back down though the second hole of the Helios. Then pick up one more O bead and come down through the second hole of the EVA bead. That will form one of the points of the earring. Add an IrisDuo and then repeat the steps to form another point. Repeat with another IrisDuo and build a third point finishing up with and IrisDuo. Take off the stop bead and tie a knot with the tail end of the thread.
Watch the Forest Earrings tutorial to follow along with Bridgette as she uses bicones to fill in the gaps around the edge.
Attach a flower earring post to the top. Bring the thread down through the seed beads along the edge. Tie off the ends. You can add a dab of glue onto the loop to make sure it is nice and secure.
