This is a fun project that takes a little practice, but when you master it, you can use it for necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and decorative edgings.

Materials per earring set:

  • 60 green seed beads
  • 12 garnet beads, round 3mm
  • Nylon beading string
  • Beading needle
  • 1 Pair sterling french wires
  • Match or lighter

Step 1:

String your needle with the nylon beading string. Thread through one french wire and one seed bead and tie a knot.

Step 2:

Thread 11 seed beads, 1 garnet, and one more seed bead.

Step 3:

Run thread back through garnet and 2 seed beads.

Step 4:

String 2 more seed beads, 1 garnet and 1 more seed bead.

Step 5:

Run thread back through garnet and 4 seed beads. You will move back toward the ear wire.

Step 6:

String 2 more seed beads, 1 garnet, and 1 more seed bead.

Step 7:
