Sorry I missed posting last week. It was a very busy week. So for all of us that get so busy we can barely find time to blog, besides bead, here are some quick seed bead earrings to get your beading fix!

She wants the earrings to also have CzechMates tile beads in them and “Coin Earrings” was the only pattern I could think of to use. The thing is that the earrings don’t have any SuperDuos in them and I thought it would be nice if they did. So, last night I came up with a couple of ways to add SuperDuos to the basic “Coin Earring” design.

If you are about to make beaded earrings at home, there is no doubt that the seed bead earrings is the best choice. Not only the patterns of the seed bead earrings are rich, but also the various color collocation. To those who have ever tried the seed bead earrings, though the tiny seed beads are sometimes a little annoying, the only thing needed is our patience.
Right-Angle weave stitch, also known as RAW, is an off-loom bead weaving technique. This stitch is said to have originated somewhere in Africa, but examples can be found in beadwork from many cultures, including Philippines, New Guinea and England. Beads are stitched together with thread only making right angle turns, hence the name. The result is an almost fabric like piece of beadwork. Right-Angle weave can be woven with either one needle or two. – Wikipedia

Dagger-style beads are getting to be more and more popular, so here’s a tutorial for making a pair of earrings using right angle weave with these neat beads. And to make things more interesting, I’ve also used some of the new peanut-style seed beads.

Cubic right-angle weave differs from tubular right-angle weave in that it is a solid piece of beadwork with little “walls” between each unit. Tubular right-angle weave is just that — a hollow piece of right-angle weave that you can wrap around a cord or other armature to give it structure. Cubic right-angle weave doesn’t need an armature to give it a sound structure.
Near where I live, there is a wholesaler for Swarovski crystals. If you can spend enough, you can attend an open house once every 3 months. Usually, there is a class to take in the afternoon, so my beading friends and I make a day of it, meeting for breakfast or lunch beforehand. It’s a lot of fun and we get great prices on crystal for making projects like these:

While browsing Pinterest, I came upon this necklace photo and it gave me an idea for embellishing a crystal drop bead. What I came up with is easy to do and the number of seed beads can be adjusted to fit different size drops. My tutorial includes the bead counts for two common sizes.

Bead netting can be traced back to Egyptian artifacts, New Kingdom, 664-525B.C. and is probably older in origin. Bead netting can be found in most cultures around the world. Fiber netting is universal and has been used for fishing nets by fishermen since the earliest times of humankind. Some of the most exquisite bead netting was created in the 1800’s, especially during the Victorian period, many with pearls and jet beads. Bead netting was added as embellishment over fabric bags from 1850 through the early 1900’s. Bead Wrangler

This is not a new pattern in any sense of the word. There are many tutorials already available. So why do another. Simple. It took me an hour to determine for a 4mm Swarovski bicone what beads create the best net. So here is what I decided, and the outcome.
