Daisy Earrings Instruction
Create Earring Top
On 18” of beading thread, pick up one 8/0 gold bead, earring wire, and one 8/0 gold bead. Pass the needle up through the first bead, through the earring wire, and down through the second bead. Repeat thread path for a second time.
Work a herringbone stitch. Pick up two 11/0 gold seed beads. Pass down through the 8/0 bead below, through the earring wire and up through the 8/0 bead and the bead just added in this step.
Pick up four 11/0 gold seed beads, one green seed bead, one Es-O Mini bead, one green seed bead, and four 11/0 gold seed beads.
Work a modified herringbone stitch. Pass the needle down through the 11/0 gold bead below, up through five gold beads and one green bead.
Frame the Es-O Mini Bead. Pick up two green beads. Pass through the next hole of the Es-O Mini bead. Pick up two green beads. Pass through the Es-O Mini bead and the first two green beads you picked up in this step.
Add transition bead. Pick up one 8/0 gold bead. Pass down through the framing beads, through the Es-O Mini bead, up through the framing beads and through the 8/0. Repeat thread path working with tight tension.
Tip: If you ever find that you didn’t work with tight enough tension while creating a piece of jewelry, then you can remedy this when you are weaving in thread ends.
Start the Daisy
Flower Note: The first Es-O Mini bead you will pick up will be referred to as A and the second one as B.
Pick up one green bead, one Es-O Mini bead (A) and one green bead. Pass through the 8/0 and the next green bead.
Frame the “petal”. Pick up two green beads. Pass through the Es-O Mini bead. Pick up two green beads. Pass through the Es-O Mini bead, the first pair of green beads, and through the next hole of the Es-O Mini bead.
Pick up the center bead (4mm yellow fire polished bead) and one Es-O Mini bead (B). Pass through the center bead and A. Pick up two Es-O Mini beads and pass through B. Pick up three Es-O Mini beads and pass through A. Pass through all seven Es-O Mini beads. Repeat thread path several times and work with tight tension. This is how you get the center bead to rest on top. Just make sure that it is on the correct side when the earring is worn. Weave in thread ends and trim.
Make second earring by repeating the steps above.
