April 2007 Beaded Elegant Earring Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is an elegant beaded earring made with Japanese seed beads and hexagons using the Right Angle Weave technique (RAW). Great as a fashion accessory or as a jewelry gift.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Earring :

What you need:

1)    Glass seed beads size 11/0 (silver white)
2)    Glass hexagon beads size 11/0 (any matching color)
3)    Earring hooks and 4 jump rings.
4)    Beading string (0.25mm)

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.


Step 1:
  • Cut a piece of beading string around 1/2 meter long.

    Add a silver seed bead at the middle of the string (where the red dot is), remember to balance out both end of the string so that they are of the same length.

    Continue to add one seed bead on each side of the string, one last bead on one of the string and use the other end to crisscross through this last added bead.
Step 2:
  • Continue:

    On the left (red) line, add one hexagon bead, one seed bead, one hexagon bead, one seed bead and one last hexagon bead to crisscross the other line (black) through this last added bead.
    Remember to continue to pass the red line (the one you used earlier to add new beads on) further through the right bead from step 1 (shown where the red arrow is coming out from).
Step 3:
  • Continue:

    On the top (black) line, add one seed bead, one hexagon bead, one seed bead and one last hexagon bead to crisscross the other line (red) through this last added bead.
    Remember to continue to pass the black line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the bottom bead from step 1 (shown where the black arrow is coming out from).
Step 4:
  • Continue to repeat step 3:

    On the right (red) line, add one seed bead, one hexagon bead, one seed bead and one last hexagon bead to crisscross the other line (black) through this last added bead.
    Remember to continue to pass the red line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the bottom bead from step 1 and the very first hexagon bead added on step 2 (shown where the red arrow is coming out from).
Step 5:
  • Continue:

    On the bottom (black) line, add one seed bead, one hexagon and one last seed bead to crisscross the other line (red) through this last added bead.

    Remember to continue to pass the black line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the top adjoining seed bead (shown where the black arrow is coming out from).
Step 6:
  • From where you left off:

    On the bottom left (red) line, add five seed beads, crisscross the other line (black) through the last added bead.

    Remember to continue to pass the red line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the adjoining hexagon bead on it's right (shown where the red arrow is coming out from).
Step 7:
  • Continue:

    On the left (black) line, add one hexagon bead, one seed bead, one hexagon bead, one seed bead, one hexagon bead and one last seed bead to crisscross the other line (red) through the last added bead.

    Remember to continue to pass the black line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the two adjoining seed beads on it's bottom right (shown where the black arrow is coming out from).
Step 8:
  • Continue:

    On the top (red) line, add four seed beads, crisscross the other line (black) through the last added bead.

    Remember to continue to pass the red line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the adjoining hexagon bead on it's bottom (shown where the red arrow is coming out from).
Step 9:
  • Repeat step 7:

    On the top (black) line, add one hexagon bead, one seed bead, one hexagon bead, one seed bead, one hexagon bead and one last seed bead to crisscross the other line (red) through the last added bead.

    Remember to continue to pass the black line (the one you used in this step to add new beads on) further through the two adjoining seed beads on it's bottom left (shown where the black arrow is coming out from).
  • Now Repeat step 8, then step 7, then step 8 for the last time.
Step 10:
  • Continue after you have finished the last repeat of step 8 (you should have your previous beading string pass through one hexagon bead and one more seed bead on it's top):

    On the bottom (black) line, add one hexagon bead, one seed bead, one hexagon bead, one seed bead and one last hexagon bead to crisscross the other line (red) through this last added bead.

    Pass the lines back through the piece until they meet head to head, tie off, pass the remainder through the piece in no specific order, cut away excess.
Step 11:
  • Take two jump rings, hook one ring through one end (where there's a mix of hexagon and seed bead circle) of the piece you just made, hook the other jump ring through the earring loop and the previous jump ring you hooked on the piece.

Repeat step 1 to 11 for the other side of the earring.
