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.
- 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
Follow the pattern below to create the 2 beaded chevrons in brick stitch.
Refer to my DIY Baby Owl Pendants post for more details about the brick stitch if you are not already familiar with this technique.
Connect the 2 small 3mm jump rings to the top corner beads using your pliers.
Connect the chains to the open jump rings.
Use the bigger 4mm jump ring to connect the chains to the lever backs.
Repeat these operations for the second earring.
You are done!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
