I absolutely love this new Lotus Lace earring design. It requires 11/0 seed beads, 2x5mm 2-hole Superduo or twin beads, and 6mm pearls or round beads. This pattern also includes a “shorter variation” (shown in the light blue, white, and silver earrings below) as an alternative to the longer version. This pattern works equally well with either smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, or with larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, and works with either Superduo or twin beads.
Here is a list of materials used in the various color combinations I experimented with:
|11/0 seed beads||Superduos or twins||6mm round beads|
|Czech gold||Apollo Gold Superduos||Czech druks, opaque satin copper|
|Czech silver||White Luster twins||green adventurine (natural stone)|
|TOHO nickel||Silver Superduos||Light violet Pearls|
|Delica nickel||Silver Superduos||Dark Iris Blue Druks|
|Czech silver||Light Blue Luster Superduos||Ivory Pearls|
|TOHO Bronze||Black Superduos||Black Druks|
|TOHO Bronze||Transparent Amethyst Luster Superduos||Transparent Amethyst Luster Druks|
