This is an earring pattern that coordinates with the Lorraine Necklace design in my last post. Like the necklace, it also requires 11/0 seed beads, 4mm pearls or crystals, 6mm & 8mm pearls (or round beads), and Superduo or twin beads. A 6/0 or 8/0 bead is used at the top to attach the earring to an ear hook or clip with a jump ring. If you choose to use 4mm crystals that are not bicone (i.e. like the black/gold piece below, where the crystals are more oval), a slight adjustment to the pattern is needed. If using oval crystals, then at steps 5 and 6 where you see 2 seed beads in a row, use only one. Below the picture is a list of materials I used in the three pieces shown. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
