I used Toho seed beads to make today's earrings and they worked fine. The only change that I had to make was in the loop at the top. I used one less 11/0 seed bead on each side of the 8/0 bead.

Janet Earrings - Hematite & Orchid Aqua


JANET EARRINGS
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Gunmetal" (451)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Gunmetal" (451)
  • CzechMates tile beads "Polychrome Orchid Aqua"
  • SuperDuo beads "Polychrome Orchid Aqua"


As I mentioned in THIS post earlier this month, my plan is to create a pattern for these earrings. I was waiting to show you the earrings that I've made until I was ready to post the pattern. However, due to everything that's going on in the world right now, I'm finding it difficult to motivate myself to spend hours sitting at my computer creating diagrams. So, I've decided that I will show you the earrings now rather than waiting for the pattern to be ready. I have five more pairs to show you over the next few days.

These earrings are my adaptation of Deb Roberti's "Coin Earrings" with SuperDuos added. You can buy Deb's original pattern HERE.

Russian Leaf Earrings #4


RUSSIAN LEAF EARRINGS #4
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (4221)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (DB1851)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Opaque Sea Foam Glazed Luster" (DB374)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Galvanized Matte Berry" (DB1167)

Yesterday I had a request for bead pick-up instructions to make "Russian Leaf Earrings" with this design. I previously blogged about the sample earring above HERE but I never did make a complete pair of these earrings. Let me know if you see any "Russian Leaf" color charts on my blog that you would like the bead pick-up instructions for and I will type them up and post them.


Click HERE to download my free PDF file which tells step-by-step when to add each color Delica bead while making these earrings. This is NOT a tutorial for making "Russian Leaf" earrings". You will need to use Jill Wiseman's tutorial (see the link below) but make them with seven rows instead of nine as Jill instructs. The color chart below is included in the PDF file.
Read THIS post where I explain how I finish and reinforce my Russian Leaf earrings. I also have information about how I stiffen my earrings in THIS post.

Watch Jill Wiseman's YouTube video tutorial HERE to learn how to make Russian Leaf earrings similar to these and download her free PDF HERE


You can buy Delica beads at Red Panda, Aura Crystals, Supply Emporium and Jill Wiseman Designs.
