- Around 2g, 11/0 Miyuki round seed beads - Opaque light blue (I'm not sure the color code for this. It's from my old collection too.)

You can use just one color for 11/0 seed beads. I used two colors because it is easier to see where the thread goes. 15/0 is optional, I used them to secure the earring hooks at the seed beads loop.

And you can substitute 8/0 with pearl 3mm or crystal bicone 3mm.

Abbreviation
- 11/0A is for duracoat sea foam
- 11/0B is for opaque light mint

Step 1.

Cut the thread around 20 inches. Pick up [11/0B and 8/0] four times, total of eight beads. Pass through the first 11/0B and all beads twice to make a tight circle. Exit at the first 11/0B (red arrow).

Step 2

This is how I connect it to the earring hook. You can do it differently if you want.

Pick up 11/0B, two 11/0A, 8/0, 11/0A, 8/0, two 11/0A and 11/0B. Pass through two 11/0A (red arrow).

Step 13

Pass through 8/0, two 11/0A, 110B, two 11/0A, 8/0 and 11/0A (red arrow).

Step 14

Pick up two 11/0A, earriing hook and two 11/0A. Pass through 11/0A just exited (red arrow)

Step 15

Pass through all beads here one more time. Exit at the second 11/0A (red arrow).

Step 16

Pick up 15/0. Pass through the earring hook. Pick up another 15/0. Pass through 11/0A (red arrow).

Pass through all beads here to reinforce. You can finish off the thread now.



Make the other earring the same way. Done!

Hope you like it. Happy beading! And please stay safe, strong and healthy!
