These are some really fun and stylish beaded earrings you can make yourself with just a few basic beads. This one starts out with 5 larger blue beads beings strung together, and then you tie them in a loop using one more tiny bead.
Then you thread a small silver bead and push your needle through one of the blue beads, add another small silver bead and push through the next blue bead, until you complete the round.
Then load up seven more silver beads and feed them through your original loop, and to continue on, you can watch the free tutorial by Sonysree Creations here.
Beaded Bracelet (Free Tutorial)
To make this beaded bracelet, you basically are threading two strands and crossing them over each other at regular intervals! It’s a simple concept!
You pull your string through your clasp end so that you have enough string length on BOTH sides of the clasp. Now you put both strings through one bead, then branch the two strings off: Put 3 beads (alternating colors) on one side and 3 on the other, The put both through a new bead, and you’ll have completed one loop. You just keep going like this until the end, and you’ve got the basis of the bracelet. One more pass for the extra flower or leaf designs.

Beading Pattern for Bracelet
This is an elegant, but also spicy, beaded bracelet pattern that uses mostly small seed beads, but also a few larger beads. In the photos, they use a pearl like sphere, but you could use any larger bead you want to showcase, or even letter beads!
All you need for this one is: 11/0 and 10/0 seed beads and your larger beads (pearls used in the one shown are 10mm). This is obvious but you can just add segments to this bracelet until you have the size you want.
