Day 2 of the Earring Challenge

I opened up the current issue of Bead and Button Magazine and I was so happy to find a pattern for a new beaded bead! The pattern can be found on page 34 and is by Laura Landrum. The beaded beads are so pretty and work up really quickly. They have 12mm Bugl Beads that help make up the structure of the piece. As you can see the beads make beautiful earrings as well as a bracelet or necklace. The only thing that I did differently from the pattern is that I went through the beads again once I was finished with the piece so that it made it a little more sturdy. If you get a chance be sure to try the pattern because it's super simple and there are endless color possibilities!
