title beaded chevron dangle earrings

Chevron is one of my favourite geometric shapes. Using the brick stitch technique,  you can make very nice chevrons by weaving miyuki glass beads and create your own pieces of jewellery. Learn how to make these simple and elegant earrings in a few steps.

Supplies needed:

    • Jewellery pliers
    • Sterling silver chain – 2×10 links
    • 1 silver jump ring – 4mm
    • 2 silver jump rings – 3mm

 

 

  • 2 sterling silver lever backs
  • Miyuki delica 11/0 seed beads in sterling silver and silver lined cobalt blue
  • Beading thread
  • 2 thin beading needles

 

DIY steps:

Follow the pattern below to create the 2 beaded chevrons in brick stitch.
