Tutorial: Orion Earrings

To see the materials I used in the tutorial and more information, click HERE.


Orion Earrings

I created this earring after I finished the Orion bracelet, but I had no time to work in the video until last weekend. The tutorial is quite simple. The step showing how to bezel a rivoli is similar to the bracelet. So if you watched the bracelet tutorial, you can skip the first step in the video.

That's the earring:


The materials I used:
- Delica beads 11/0, matte black (#DB0310); store
- Toho seed beads 15/0, silver lined gray (#29B); store
- Toho seed beads 15/0, matte metallic pewter (#F451D); store
- Miyuki seed beads 15/0, matte opaque black (#401F); store
- Swarovski bicone, 4mm, crystal silver night; silvexcraft
- Swarovski rivoli, 12mm, crystal black patina; silvexcraft
- Swarovski pendant 6106, 16mm, crystal black patina; silvexcraft
- Earwire BO 44, sterling silver; silvexcraft
- Wildfire thread, 0.15mm, black; store
