Tara Motif Earrings - Turquoise & Chocolate

  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • Rulla beads "Jet Copper"
  • MiniDuo beads "Turquoise Bronze Picasso"

I showed you a sample of this colorway in THIS previous post. I also blogged yesterday HERE about a pair of these Tara motif earrings where I added a jump ring differently by just inserting it through the motif. This time I decided to replace the center two 15/0 seed beads with an 8/0 bead on one of the corners. I like this way of attaching the earring wire better than with a seed bead loop or my previous method.

The "Tara Bracelet" pattern is available free from The BeadSmith site HERE. Visit Supply Emporium for a nice selection of Rulla beads. If you spend at least $30 in Claire's Etsy shop, use the coupon code "15BLOG" to get 15% off your order.


  1. Lovely!
    Did you already made this with 'regular' SD:s, need then added seed beads on sides, I think. More color selection with SuperDuos.

    1. I have not tried making this with regular SuperDuos but I suppose it's worth a try.
