Field of Green Bracelet and Earrings Instructions
Designed by Jennie, Artbeads Customer Service Team

A fabulous field of green color fills these earrings and bracelet. The green fire-polished and TOHO beads are perfectly complemented by layers of coppery Artbeads Designer Wire. Learn the technique for making these pieces in this Artbeads Cafe episode and then take a look at design variations for even more inspiration!

Bracelet


Step one:
Follow the instructions outlined in this Artbeads Cafe episode to create your bracelet using 18 and 24 gauge antique copper Artbeads Designer Wire and 6mm June bug green fire-polished beads. To make the variation with beads on the outside edges, add a TOHO 8/0 bead round in color-lined light green/topaz to each side as instructed in the video. You can finish the bracelets with an S hook clasp, as Jennie does in the video.

Wire-wrapped Earrings


Step one:
Follow the same technique to create the first pair of earrings using 18 and 24 gauge antique copper wire, four June bug green beads, and TOHO seed beads on the outer edges. After the wrap on one end, add a TOHO, a June bug green bead, and another TOHO. Finish this end with a small simple loop. After the wrap on the other end, add a TOHO and finish with a wrapped loop.

Step two:
Attach an antique copper 22 gauge round earwire with coil to the wrapped loop. Repeat steps one and two for the other earring.

Spiral Earrings


Step one:
Cut a length of wire approximately four inches long. Create a small wire spiral on one end of the wire.

Step two:
Add a fire-polished 6mm bead in lime green to the wire, followed by three fire-polished 4mm beads in olivine copper. Make a simple loop at the top of the beads.

Step three:
Open the simple loop and add an antique copper-plated earring post with ring. Close the loop. Repeat steps one through three to make the other earring.
