Tutorial Friday???

I have been wanting to post a tutorial on my blog for these earrings that I just LOVE (made with my beads, of course) and I was going to do it Tuesday to make it Tutorial Tuesday! I saw I was tagged by the wonderful Melissa Lee and was going to do that today. But I just don't have the time to answer all those questions today, so I'm going to do this earring tutorial instead. You can buy these beads in my etsy store; I should have them in my web store soon, and you can always just make a request!

Blue Southwest Flower Earrings


(2) 3" eye pins
(2) ear wires, any kind will do!
(4) 3mm sterling saucer beads
(2) 6mm faceted blue chalcedony rondelles
(2) southwest flower lampwork beads by SueBeads!

On your eye pin, place one saucer bead, one lampwork bead, one chalcedony rondelle, and one saucer bead. Make a wrapped loop. Make sure your loop direction matches the eye pin loop at the bottom, for consistency. Open your ear wire and attach with the loop. Repeat for other earring! Easy, huh?

If you'd rather buy a pair of these earrings instead of make them, please let me know and I'll be happy to make you a set too!
