Double Hole Paper Bead Earrings Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

These earrings are made with Double Hole Paper Beads that were made with the 3/32" Double Hole Paper Bead Roller.

Materials & Tools Needed

  • 2 Double Hole Paper Beads
  • 14 Pink size 6/0 seed beads
  • 8 Clear size 6/0 seed beads
  • 2 4" pieces of 20 Guage Silver colored wire
  • Pair of Earring Findings
  • 2 jump rings 6mm diameter to match wire
  • 2 jump rings 4mm diameter to match wire
  • Pair of Needle Nose and flat nose pliers
  • Wire Cutters

Finished Size: 2" long by 5/8" wide
Skill Level: Intermediate

Instructions
Step 1: Cut your wire to two 4" pieces. Bend each one in half into a Long U Shape about 3/8" wide at the widest part.

Step 2: Work with one Earring at a time. Put 5 of the size 6/0 beads on first in alternating color so the colorful one is in the center.

Step 3: Place the double hole bead on the bent wire making sure that each end goes through each hole. Spread the wires apart a little bit to hold the bead in place for the next step.

Step 4: Working one side at a time, place 3 size 6/0 beads on each wire in alternating color. With your needle nose pliers, make a simple loop at the very end of the wire bending the wire about 1/4" from the end. Repeat with the other wire. Squeeze the two loops together so they are side by side.

Step 5: Attach large jump ring through both simple loops at the same time, close the jump ring.

Step 6: Add the smaller jump ring to the large jump ring.

Step 7: Add the earring finding to the smaller jump ring. Done!

Note: This pattern assumes you already know how to make double hole paper beads. If you don't there are a couple of videos you can watch to learn how to make them. This project is about how to make the earrings with the beads. Not how to make the beads.
