: : : Materials : : :
- Bead, Swarovski crystal, hyacinth, 4mm Xilion bicone (24 beads)
- Bead, Swarovski crystal, sunflower, 4mm Xilion bicone (26 beads)
- Bead, Swarovski crystal, white alabaster, 4mm Xilion bicone (8 beads)
Wire, artistic, silver, 26 gauge
- Earwires (2 earwires)
- Please take the creative opportunity to substitute the TierraCast findings listed above with alternative items offered at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads.
Cut wire into two equal pieces 18 inches long.
Load onto one piece of wire 13 Swarovski Xilion beads art. 5328 4mm sunflower. Moving six beads off to one side and keeping the seven remaining beads in the center of the wire, take the wire exiting from the six beads and string the wire through all seven beads. (Note: the wire tails should be exiting in opposite directions from the seven beads. The six beads should be sitting on top of and in between the seven beads art. 5328 sunflower. It is important to keep tension on the wire when weaving.)
String onto one of the wire sides, five beads art. 5328 4mm hyacinth. Take the wire from the side with no beads and string the wire through the five beads. (Note: the wire tails should be exiting in opposite directions from the five beads art. 5328 hyacinth and the five beads should be sitting on top and in between the six beads art. 5328 sunflower from the previous step.)
Repeat Step 3 using four beads art. 5328 4mm hyacinth.
Repeat Step 4 using three beads art. 5328 4mm hyacinth.
Repeat Step 5 using two beads art. 5328 4mm white alabaster.
Repeat Step 6 using one bead art. 5328 4mm white alabaster.
Take both tails of the remaining wire and working the wire together create a wire wrapped loop.
Using one blank earwire, slip on one bead art. 5328 4mm white alabaster. Turn a simple loop. Open the loop just made and add the finished piece from Step 8.
Repeat Steps 2 - 9 for the second pair.
