20 gauge jewelry wire
You will first need to cut your wire. I probably cut mine close to 8 inches. I just kind of judged how much I wanted by looking at it. You have to cut two the same length.
Start to string on your glass beads. You don't want to put too many beads on since you have to string the embroidery floss between the beads. Once the beads are on, bend the wire to the kind of shape you want. Mine have a slight teardrop shape to them, but you can make them more of a circle or strictly teardrop shop. Tie off the wire and form the loop that the earring attachment will go on.
Tie a knot at the very top of your earring
Take your embroidery floss and go down to the bottom of the earring just a little bit to the right of center and then loop back up and go between the next bead. On the big earrings I counted every two beads and the smaller earrings I went between each bead. You do this all the way until you reach the top of the other side of the earring.
Tie a knot at the top once you have gone full circle. Cut your floss and then put on the earring attachment.
TADA! Your earrings should look something like this. I hope you have fun making your own set!
