Beadpunk Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Amy Mickelson
Inspired by Cindy Pankopf's "Triple Time" project in the June 2009 issue of Bead & Button magazine, the designer created woven cogs using a square stitch.
The designer uses Pankopf's instructions with the following exceptions: To create a steampunk look, the designer inserted a metal cog bead in the center of each woven ring. 6x4mm tip-drilled teardrop beads replace the 3mm fringe beads.
Use adhesive to secure the metal cog bead to inner seed bead ring.
Design variation: For an asymmetric look, attach one ear wire to the seed bead cog, and one to idea-ology cog.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
