miyuki bead serape earrings

To make this trendy Miyuki Bead Serape Earrings, basic knowledge of the brick stitch is required.
Step 1

Thread a beading needle on a 96" [243.8 cm] length of bead thread.

Step 2

Brick stitch Miyuki beads around your metal circle. Leave a beginning tail that is about 6" [15.24 cm] long.

Step 3

When you make your way around to the beginning, thread through your first bead and start another round of brick stitched beads around the first.
TIP: You will see the gap as you are stitching. Just work two seed beads, separately, in the stitch from the previous row.

Step 4

For the last row, repeat Step 3 around the second row until you get two beads from the first in this third row.

Step 5

Add one bead onto your needle and thread, then add the loop at the bottom of a fishhook earring, and finally another bead. Now, work your needle through the first bead of the third row.

Step 6

Weave your working thread through beads until you get next to your starting tail. Tie a knot. Weave the ends into adjacent beads and trim excess thread.

Step 7

Add a dab of glue to the knot and the thread across the back that wraps around the metal circle. Let dry.

Step 8

Repeat Steps 1-7 for a second earring.
