Beaded jewelry – Earrings from bugle beads!!!!

Very often we buy bugle beads and then it is stored for long time and we don’t know what to make from it. Today I suggest how to make beaded jewelry. i.e. earrings from bugle beads.

Let’s start!!

We need the next material: bugle beads, seed beads, big beads, needle, thread and earrings.

We start from the earrings. Fix the thread on the earring.

String two seed beads, big bead, 4 seed beads and two bungle beads. Close into circle, as you on the  picture.

Do the one part of the beaded butterfly.

Do the second part of the beaded butterfly. If you can’t understand how to make this beaded element, here you’ll find the another tutorial (but in russian language, but i hope you’ll understand everything through the pictures).

Now we should make the beaded chain.  String 7 beads and close them into circle.

String three more seed beads, big bead and three seed beads.

String 7 seed beads and close them again into circle.

And one more time. String 7 seed beads and close into circle.  In this beaded chain you can play with different colours or maybe size of beads.

Do the second beaded butterfly.

Do the second beaded chain and after that the third beaded butterfly.

Do one more beaded chain, as you see on the picture.

Make an eyelet, i.e. the end of our beaded chain from the butterflies is sewed to the earring.

What we get.

Here you can find another version of using of these elements- beaded butterfly.
