wood seed bead fringe earrings

Use your Cricut® machine to create base shapes for your earrings!
Step 1

Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Cut the four shapes from wood veneer. Glue two shapes, back to back, and let aside to dry.

Step 3

Determine your pattern or use the project image as a guide.

Step 4

Thread about 72" [182.88 cm] of thread onto the beading needle.

Step 5

Build the first row of beads, with a brick stitch, across the bottom of your wood half-circle. Add a white seed bead to your thread, then thread your needle through the shape. Now, thread your needle back through the top of your seed bead. Pull your thread while holding the bead against the bottom edge of your wood shape until you have about a 4" (10.2 cm) tail on the outside end of your thread.
TIP: Until you add the second bead, the first one is fairly unstable so be sure to hold it in place until the second bead is added.

Step 6

Add a white seed bead to your needle, run the needle through the opening again, then back through the top of your seed bead. Pull your thread until the bead is tight against the bottom edge of your wood shape and next to your first bead.

Step 7

Repeat Step 6 to add eleven more white beads across the bottom of wood shape.

Step 8

Turn your work around so you again are working left to right.

Step 9

String all the beads for the first strand of fringe onto the thread. Now, loop around the last bead, then run your needle and thread back up through the beads.

Step 10

Hold the bottom bead in the fringe strand, pull the working thread up gently until there is no slack in your fringe strand.

Step 11

Run your needle, from back to front, through the “bridge” of thread at the bottom between the top two beads.

Step 12

Repeat Steps 9-11 until you have a strand of fringe hanging from every bead across the bottom of your wood shape.
TIP: You should have a total of 13 fringe strands.

Step 13

To finish the fringe, weave your working thread up and down through each bead across the base brick stitch and back. Cut the tail as close as you can to the last bead.

Step 14

Thread your tail and work through several of the beads in your base brick stitch, then cut the tail as close as you can to the last bead. Add a dab of glue to the end to secure. Let dry.

Step 15

Carefully open the loop at the bottom of a fishhook earring, thread the fishhook wire through the hole at the top of your wood shape and squeeze the loop together to close.

Step 16

Repeat Steps 4-15 for a second earring.
