Let’s have some fun with these easy beaded bezeled Earrings! For this class we will be making beaded bezels for a Swarovski Chaton, you will have your choice of color. Counts will be given for using other sizes of crystals. For class we will be keeping the focal small so we are able to complete the bezel in class.
There are so many ways to use this basic bezel, you will work the basic earring version in class. We will discuss finishing options to make the earrings uniquely yours. And these earrings work up quickly and make a great gift.
The great thing about this technique is that we are not gluing down the focal piece. What that means for you is that if you change your mind and want to use the focal in another design-you can-as there will be no damage to the piece. This is a great technique if you have a gemstone cabochon that you do not wish to damage in any way.
This technique will work for a variety of types and sizes of focals that we will discuss in the class.
You will learn how to bead around a focal piece of many differing sizes. And it doesn’t matter if there is a hole in your focal or not.
These simple but elegant earrings remind me of the earrings the glamour girls of the past and the jewelry they wore, Shophia Loren, Joan Crawford, just to name a few. These earrings work up quickly after the first pair.
These earrings feature Swarovski Chatons and a pear shaped fancy stone. Prerequisites for this class: proficiency in the peyote stitch and step ups. You have many options for these earrings: options for earring findings, to use 2mm Swarovski crystal rounds or 2mm Czech crystal pearls, or keep it simple with 11/0 beads.
These are the most adorable earrings and pendant set, and Luna cabs come in so many wonderful colors. I bet you can’t just make one! Start with the earrings, building your bezel for your yummy Luna cab, set your cab and then the real fun starts. The embellishment or the icing on the cab! Embellish with seed beads and crystal pearls, then suspend your piece from a delicate chain in the length you prefer, suspending the pearl drop as you go, add your ear wires and call them done!
