I love coming up with unique earring looks. This look incorporates seed beads in a fun, loopy hoop statement full of earthy yet luxurious colors.
Our Jungle Queen Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend makes a lovely and loopy accent to the TierraCast components at the center of these earrings. The rich colors of the seed beads are a wonderful match for the ethnic look of the V links. Discover more of Cheri's TierraCast favorites in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a comfortable length of TOHO One-G beading thread in green at least a yard long. Thread it onto a needle and knot it around the hole at one end of the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter ethnic V link, leaving a tail about eight inches long.
Add approximately 47 seed beads from the Artbeads Jungle Queen Designer Blend to the thread. Then, loop the thread around the loop at the other side of the V once. Then, run the thread through the beads back to the other side of the earring. Repeat this step four times for a total of five beaded loops. To secure the threads at one loop of the V link, wrap the thread around all five threads, between the loop and the seed beads. Knot to secure. Thread the tail of the thread through one strand of beads to the other side of the earring and finish this side in the same manner.
Add a seed bead from the Blend to a 2-inch satin Hamilton gold-plated 20 gauge eye pin, followed by a Czech glass 9mm topaz with Picasso roundel bead and another seed bead. Make a simple loop at the top of the beads.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
