Beloved Earrings Instructions Designed by Teri McCamish
Delicate earrings are the perfect way to complete a wedding ensemble. These earrings are filled with romantic style, from the golden heart featured on the leverback, to the creamy pearls accented with soft touches of blue and gold. You'll love adding these earrings to your look on your special day.
Step one: Thread a Swarovski 11mm pear-shaped pearl in Cream onto a gold-filled 1.5-inch head pin with ball end, 24 gauge. Make a wrapped loop. See our Handy Tip for more information on how to make a wrapped loop. Set aside.
Step two: Thread three feet of thread onto a needle and thread on a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Cream and Miyuki metallic 24 Karat gold plated Delica. Repeat this pattern three more times. Loop your thread back down to the first pearl you added to your thread and come back up through all of your beads to form a loop.
Step three: Add six Miyuki 15/0 transparent silver-lined blue topaz Delicas to your thread. Your thread should be coming out of a gold Delica. Thread your needle through the next gold Delica to the right of the one your thread is coming out of. Repeat this step three times to form a diamond shape around the round pearls.
Step four: pass your thread through the diamond shape until you come out at the bottom point. Three blue Delicas should be on each side of your thread. Add a TOHO bead round 11/0 in opaque-lustered ivory, your wrapped loop of the pearl drop from step one and another ivory TOHO. Loop the thread through the top of the first ivory TOHO then back through the wrapped loop and the second ivory TOHO.
Step five: Go back up through the diamond shape so your thread comes out at the top point of the diamond. Thread on an ivory TOHO, a gold Delica, another ivory TOHO and make a loop by going back up through the first ivory TOHO you added.
Step six: Add two ivory TOHOs to your thread, a gold-filled lever-back with heart and two more ivory TOHOs. You should be passing your thread through the small loop at the bottom of the lever-back. Pass your thread through the gold Delica you added in the previous step and pass through all the beads you added in this step again. Thread through the second ivory TOHO you added in the previous step and back down through the diamond shape. Knot your thread near one of the gold Delicas in the diamond shape to finish your earring.
Step seven: Repeat steps one through six to make the other earring.
