August 2006 Beaded Snowflake 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 a beaded crystal snowflake earring made with seed beads and Swarovski Crystals.

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 transparent) 
2)    Crystal bicones (12 pcs of 4mm white transparent)  
3)    Beading string or wire (25mm or 25 gauge)  
4)    One pair of earring hoop
5)    Two Jump Ring
6)    Two 2 inch eye-pins.
7)    Two Round tip

Step 1: Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.

I'm using BLUE color in the diagram to represent the beads and crystals but you are actually using silver white beads and white transparent crystals.

Cut a piece of string or wire around half a meter long.

Add 6 seed beads at the middle of this string and crisscross the both ends through the last added bead. (remember to balance out both ends of the string so that they are of the same length)

Step 2: Take the left (red) line, add one crystal, one seed bead, one crystal, one seed bead and one last crystal;
Cross the right (black) line through the last added crystal;
Take the line (red) that you added beads and crystals onto, pass this line through the next seed bead from step one (as shown where the red arrow is coming out of)

Step 3: This step is similar with step 2 except for the number of crystals added.

Take the top (black) end of the line, add one seed bead, one crystal, one seed bead and one last crystal (which you would cross the bottom (red) line through) and further pass the black line through the seed bead (bottom left bead - where the black arrow is coming out from) from step 1.

Step 4: Now repeat step 3 exactly for three more time.

for the last bead circle to form the snowflake: add on one seed bead, one crystal and one last seed bead; next cross the other end of the line (black through the last added seed bead); then tie off at where the tiny green dot is and string the remaining string back through the piece to strengthen the piece and knot.

Step 5: Take one piece of eye pin, pass it through the top crystal, making sure the end passing out is longer, as you need to make another similar circle loop with this end of the eye pin with the round tip pliers.
Step 6: After making the similar circle loop, measure out both side of the eye pin and bent them so that the two circle loop is one on top of the other.

Take one jump ring, open it slightly the pliers, place both of the circle loop from the eye pin into the jump ring, follow by placing the loop from the earring hook into the jump ring, close the jump ring tightly with the pliers.

Repeat step 1 to 6 for the other side of the earring.
