How to Make Oval Earrings With Miyuki Beads
Give your earrings a colorful twist! With our big collection of Miyuki beads and different connectors, you can make these in different shapes and colors.
Start by attaching the C-lon thread to the oval connector. Make sure to use a long thread (about 1 meters), this way you don't have to finish and knot your thread after each row. For this look, you start about halfway of the oval. Use a double knot with some jewelry glue. Put your C-lon thread trough the Beading needle and thread 1 Miyuki delica bead on it. Put your needle and thread over and under the connector. After that, you go back into the bead, but make sure to go through the bottom of the bead. Pull on the thread to make sure it is tight and thread another bead on to you needle. Repeat this progress until you have finished the row (about 19 beads).
For the second row, we have to do the following:
When you look closely at your first row, you will see that in between each bead the thread made a 'bridge' (you can also look at the example). This time you put the Miyuki seed bead on to your needle and put the needle though the 'bridge'. Go back into the bead, again though the bottom. Thread a new bead on to you needle and repeat this progress until the second row is finished (18 beads).
To finish off your piece, go back through the first bead of row 1 and knot the C-lon thread around the connector. Use a double knot again and secure it with some jewelry glue.
Lastly attach the earring hooks to the connector, and they are ready to wear!
