Learn how to make fun beaded Christmas earrings with this simple, step-by-step tutorial.
Would you believe that I found this snowflake earrings pattern in my "archives" from years ago?
I don't think I've ever published it. Not sure how that happened because they're so cute!
But, I guess you get to benefit because I'm sharing the full tutorial here today.
To complete these beaded Christmas earrings, you'll need some SuperDuos, size 11 seed beads and a few drop beads.
The beauty of earrings is that you don't need a large quantity of materials so if you've got odds and ends left over from other beading projects, feel free to throw them together to make this one.
You can also use this SuperDuo pattern to create beaded Christmas ornaments. Simply attach some cord instead of earrings hooks and you're good to go.
The tutorial is suitable for all skill levels.

Snowflake Earrings Instructions
Step 1: Thread your needle with 18 inches of beading thread.
Leaving a 4-inch tail, string 1A, 1B, 1A, 1B until you have a total of 6A and 6B.
Go back through all the beads again until you're exiting the first hole of 1B. Pull the thread tight to form a circle.
Step 2: Reverse direction and pass through the second hole of the 1B you're exiting.
String 2B and pass through the second hole of the next 1B.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 five more times.
Step 4: Step up by passing through the first hole of the next 2B (the first ones added in the last round.
Reverse direction and pass through the second hole of the 1B you're exiting.
String 1C and go through the second hole of the following 1B.
Step 5: String 3A and go through the second hole of the following 1B.
Step 6: Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until all the spaces are filled.
Step 7: Continue through the next 1C, second hole of the following 1B and exit through the first 1A in the group of 3A.
Step 8: String 3A, skip the following 1A and go through the next 1A in the group of 3A.
Continue through the beadwork until you exit the first 1A in the next group of 3A.
Step 9: Repeat Step 8 five more times.
After you've added the final peak of 3A, continue through the beads until you exit the middle 1A of the following peak (second hole of 1B, 1C, second hole of 1B, 3A).

Step 10: String 3A and an earring hook.
Go back through the last 1A strung and pull the thread so the beads are snug against the existing beadwork.
Step 11: String 2A and go through the 1A your thread was exiting in Step 9 from the opposite side.
Weave the working and tail threads into the beadwork. Tie several half-hitch knots and remove the excess.
Step 12: Repeat all of the steps to complete your second earring.
Your earrings are now complete!
