About This Project

When I saw this mix, it was love at first sight. I created the Fall Leaves and Petals Bracelet first and the earrings came next, but I love them because they can be worn on their own when you want a little swing and sass!

A note about this design: Your mix will probably not be the same as mine, so you may not be able to follow the instructions or colors exactly, but this gives you a great guideline as to how to wrap the beads and what shapes fit together nicely. To create this piece, I used 2 elongated bellflower beads measuring about 22mm in length, 2 20mm flower beads and 2 bellflower beads measuring about 10mm in length.
  1. On a headpin, pick up a seed bead and your smaller bellflower bead. Make a simple (rosary) loop.
  2. Open a loop on an eye pin. Attach it to the loop made in step 1. Close the loop. Add a seed bead and your 20mm flower bead. Make a simple (rosary) loop.
  3. Open a loop on an eye pin. Attach it to the loop made in step 2. Close the loop. Add a seed bead, your elongated bellflower bead and another seed bead. Make a simple (rosary) loop.
  4. Open the loop on an ear wire and attach it to the loop from step 3.
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 to complete the other earring.

Questions and Answers

Q: I really want to print a picture of this that I can refer to as I am making it - for some reason it won't let me copy or print it - is this done on purpose or is it just a matte of me figuring it out?
Asked by: April Dawn - 4/29/2015
A: No it is not by design, I think it is because when you click on the picture it enlarges. But this is how I get around it. On your keyboard, upper right hand side, by the function keys you should have a print screen button. You can do that, it will make a copy of the screen shot and then you can add it by pasting it into a program to edit it. I use Paint, then I can crop the pic and print it. I like the paper too...you should see my desk :) I am not tech savvy enough to tell you if another program will allow you to paste it, but this is how I am doing it. I hope that helps! Karla
