Tivoli Centerline Earrings Tutorial
Save time with pre-drilled blanks and create a pair of fun earrings with size 11/0 Delica seed beads and Scandinavian colors. "Tivoli" means "funfair" in Swedish.
Created by: Summer Melaas
Stretch and wax 2-1/2 yards (2.25 meters) of thread.
Follow pattern, and using an edging stitch, put your first row of beads on one of the half moons. One column (fringe) at a time, add beads. At the bottom of the fringe, skip over the last bead added, then run your needle and thread back up through all the other beads in that column. Move needle/thread over to next fringe. Pull taught but not too tight. You want your fringe supple and free moving. Continue following pattern.
Repeat for other earring with other design.
Wire wrap a pearl to the top hole on the half moon. Make loop at top and add the ear wire.
