Earrings with Czech Pressed Glass Beads, Antique Gold-Plated Pewter Beads and Celestial Crystal® Glass Pearls

Beaded Skirt

STEP 1
Cut one 1-yard length of FireLine® thread.

Thread a beading needle onto one end of the length of thread.
STEP 2
String six sets of: one 16x5mm 2-hole dagger bead (though the top hole) and one translucent light gold #11 seed bead.

Tie off the thread, pulling the beads tight and leaving a tail forming a ring.

Pass the beading needle through the bottom hole of the first dagger bead. Continue to pass through the bottom hole of the remaining dagger beads. Pull the thread tight, bringing the dagger beads together forming a cone shape.
STEP 3
Pass the beading needle through the bottom hole of the first dagger bead then add one translucent light gold #11 seed bead. Pass the beading needle through the bottom hole of the next dagger bead. Repeat to add a #11 seed bead between each dagger bead so that the seed beads rest on top of the dagger beads.
STEP 4
Pull the thread tight then tie off using the tail from Step 2. Trim excess thread. Apply a small amount of E6000® Fray Lock® to secure the thread.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to create a second beaded skirt.
