Trendy Pearl and Shell Earrings Tutorial – Free Pattern

These shell bead shapes are getting better and better. These were picked up at a show and given to me by my friend Tracy – who is a bead-a-holic too. Not seed beads, but that is another story. Thanks for the beads, Trace!

You’ll need these supplies:

  • 2 – 25mm square cut out shell beads
  • 4 – 5mm pink pearls
  • 4 – flat 2mm spacers; silver
  • 2 – earwires
  • 2 – head pins

You’ll need these tools:

  • Round nose pliers
  • wire cutters
  • Chain nose pliers

1.) Bead on the head pin: pearl, silver spacer, pearl. silver spacer. Place the head pin up through the ‘top’ hole of the shell bead.

2.) Make a loop and wrap in the headpin.

3.) Attach the head pin to your earwires. Enjoy!
