Czech Glass and Bead Cap Earrings with Rose Gold Findings
designed byCheri Carlson
Approximate Size1-1 1/2 Inches
These colors and textures just remind me of all of the spices and herbs that go into loose-leaf tea.
You can use just about any kind of bead or bead cap for dangles in earrings. Cheri had fun combining different beads and caps together in these pairs of earrings. See more ideas for making earrings in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Open the loop of a 2-inch 22 gauge sterling silver eye pin and add the dangle. Close the loop.
Add a Czech glass 12x10mm sapphire blue with bronze finish bead to the eye pin, followed by a Czech glass 12x6mm light grey silk matte with dark bronze wash wide bell flower bead and a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Crystal Iridescent Red. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Open the loop of a 1/20 14K rose gold-filled leverback with ring and attach to the wrapped loop at the top of your earring. Close the loop.
Repeat these steps to make the other earring.,
Green and Orange Earrings
Slide a Czech glass gaspeite green bead onto a 14K/20 rose gold-filled 1.5-inch 24 gauge ball-end head pin, followed by a Nunn Design 8mm antique copper-plated pewter daisy bead cap, and a Czech glass 4mm Halo Ethereal Sandalwood fire-polished bead (please note that the teardrop beads Cheri used in her design are no longer available. We have listed a similar 9x6mm Czech glass faceted rondelle in the supplies list). Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Open the 14K/20 rose gold-filled 15mm endless beading hoop and add your dangle. Close the hoop.
Repeat these steps to make the other earring.

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!
