TRINKET EARRINGS

(copyright 2010 Deborah Roberti)

Materials:
• 2 yards of 6 lb. FireLine
• About 80 size 11/0 seed beads: I used Miyuki #457L Light Bronze.
• 10 size 4mm bicone crystals (or any size 4mm bead should also work just fine): I used Swarovski Amethyst Satin bicones
8 size 4mm glass pearls (or any size 4mm bead should also work just fine): I used Swarovski Bronze Swarovski Bronze.

• two small (2-4mm) jump rings

• a pair of earring findings

Step 12: String nine seed beads.

Go down and around through the seed bead, the bicone crystal, the two seed beads, the bicone crystal, the five seed beads, the bicone crystal, the two seed beads and the bicone crystal along the outer edge (highlighted in RED):

Step 14: To add even more strength to your earring, go back around through the beads highlighted in RED and the jump ring:
