Regal Ruby Earrings

I have created these bordered beads several times but never have I loved them as much as I do in these earrings. The topaz luster seed beads and Light Siam crystals make these earrings look like shining rubies adorning your ears.

Shanna Steele, Auntie’s Beads Designer

Instructions:


1. Cut a piece of Fireline measuring about 18 inches. Thread your needle. String 6 seed beads on your thread, leaving yourself about a 5-6 inch tail.

2. Run your needle through the center of an 8mm round crystal, then back through the 6 seed beads just strung. Run your needle and thread back through the 8mm bead one more time. Your working thread (the one with the needle) should now be meeting up with the tail. Tie a square knot.

3. Run your thread back through the 8mm bead. Pick up 6 more seed beads. Run the needle and thread back through the 8mm bead.

4. Run your needle and thread through the 6 seed beads just added, then up through the 8mm bead.

5. Begin tying half hitch knots around the left side of the bead. Tie one between the hole of the bead and the place where the 6 seed beads are. Then tie a couple more between the 6 seed beads.

6. Take your needle and thread through the 8mm bead and then begin tying half hitch knots around the right side of your work.

7. Run your needle and thread through the 8mm bead one more time. Cut your tail and your working thread. If you would like, you can apply a small amount of glue to secure your work.

8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 using 5 seed beads and your 8mm crystal bicone.

9. On a headpin, pick up the following: a seed bead, your bordered 8mm round, a seed bead, a 4mm bicone, a seed bead, your bordered 8mm bicone, and a seed bead. Make a loop. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.

10. Use your pliers to open the loop on the ear wire. Attach it to the loop made in step 9. Close the loop.
