3D PEYOTE TRIANGLE EARRINGS
- 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Light Bronze" (457L)
- 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Metallic Light Bronze" (DB22L)
- 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Blue Grey" (DB301)
I figured that while I was on a roll learning to work with Delicas and Peyote stitch, I might as well give Kelly Dale's YouTube tutorial a try. Her 3-dimensional triangles make very cute little earrings. They're nice because they have some thickness due to the tubular method used to make them.
You can watch Kelly's video HERE.
Kelly says in the video to use a yard of thread to make each triangle. That's not nearly enough. I started making one with almost a yard and had to add thread three times. I recommend using 2 yards or about 3 1/2 yards per pair. It's better to have too much thread than not enough. You'll need about 3 grams of Delica beads per pair of earrings. I didn't weigh out just the blue beads but you can assume that there are at least 2 1/2 grams of the main color because there aren't that many of the bronze beads in the earrings.
I added a seed bead loop to one of the corners using regular 15/0 seed beads. The loop is connected to the Delica bead at the very tip of the triangle.
You can buy Delica beads at Red Panda, Aura Crystals, Supply Emporium and Baubles & Beads.
