Bora Bora Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Tropical sea blue colors and a touch of luxurious gold will have you feeling like you've escaped to a fabulous vacation in Bora Bora. Cheri layered Czech glass Forget-Me-Not flower beads to create these fun and easy-to-make pieces. Switch up the colors to create a whole new style.

Bracelets


Step one:
Cut a length of Elasticity long enough to fit your wrist, with some extra length for knotting later. Add the following bead pattern to the stringing material:
  • Two Czech glass 5mm metallic gold Forget-Me-Not flower beads
  • One Czech glass 5mm teal blue Forget-Me-Not flower bead
  • One Czech glass 5mm turquoise alabaster Forget-Me-Not flower bead
  • One teal flower bead
  • Six gold flower beads
  • One teal, one turquoise, and one teal flower bead
  • Three gold flower beads
  • One teal flower bead
  • Five turquoise flower beads
  • One teal flower bead
  • Three gold flower beads
  • One teal, one turquoise, and one teal flower bead
  • Six gold flower beads
  • One teal, one turquoise, and one teal flower bead
  • Three gold flower beads
  • One teal flower bead
  • Two turquoise flower beads
Slide another turquoise flower bead onto the strand and then make a mirror image of the bead pattern to complete the strand.

Step two:
Knot the ends of the Elasticity together and trim to form your bracelet. For more help, please see our stretch bracelet video tutorial.

Step three:
Cut a length of Elasticity long enough to fit your wrist, with some extra length for knotting later. Add the following bead pattern to the material:
  • Five teal flower beads
  • One gold flower bead
  • Six turquoise flower beads
  • One gold flower bead
  • Five teal flower beads
Repeat this pattern until your bracelet is the desired length. We repeated the pattern four times.

Step four:
Knot the ends of the Elasticity together and trim to form your bracelet.

Earrings


Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately five inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a gold-filled 14K 4.30mm open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Use a 3mm gold-filled crimp cover to hide the crimp.

Step two:
Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • One turquoise flower bead
  • One teal flower bead
  • Six gold flower beads
  • One teal, one turquoise, and one teal flower bead
  • Three gold flower beads
  • One teal flower bead
  • Two turquoise flower beads
Add another turquoise flower bead to the strand and make a mirror image of the bead pattern.

Step three:
Add a crimp tube to the end of the strand. Bring you wire around the jump ring at the start of the strand and back through the crimp tube. Crimp in place and then hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

Step four:
Open the loop of a 14K/20 gold-filled earwire with 3mm bead. Add it to the top of the jump ring connecting the ends of your beaded strand. Close the loop.

Step five:
Repeat steps one through four to make the other earring.
