In the summer season, to get some jewelry pieces for your flowing dresses, nothing can be better than a pair of Bohemian Style Earring. Here, in  this tutorial, making use of the varisized seed beads and a section of nylon wire, and then just move your hand for the dangling Bohemian Style Earring with me!


For most girls, the long skirt is one of necessities in hot summer, no matter the floral-print tea style or the simple Pleated  one, either is very popular in nowadays. Thus, when covering most of your body with the skirt,  the jewelry ornaments are especially vital for bright your appearance. Here, I have collected another tutorial for the vivid Bohemian Style Earring. Both the materials and steps are exactly simple in the whole project. Then, just begin with gather together the materials:

Materials and tools while beading this Bohemian Style Earring:

beads and charms:

12/0 Glass Seed Beads

8/0 Glass Seed Beads

Nylon Wire

Iron Earring Hooks


Side cutting plier


 Main steps for the Bohemian Style Earring:

Step1:Cut a section of the nylon wire, the length in the whole Bohemian Style Earring beading project shall be extremely long , so you can replace it with some more short parts; in this step,  100mm will be enough. In the beginning, string two white 12/0 Glass Seed Beads; then tie a knot at one of the two tips, the shorter tip should be left 30mm wire, then pick up the longer tip weave two white 12/0 Glass Seed Beads twice and stop at the starting point.
When tighten the wire, you will see the following shape:
Step2: Add the second layer. In this action, you need to replace the center one with the orange  12/0 Glass Seed Bead. The detail actions are: firstly, add another white 12/0 Glass Seed Bead and orange  12/0 Glass Seed Bead on the wire, then hook the wire section between the below two beads and weave back through the orange one; secondly, add one orange  12/0 Glass Seed again and connect the beads with the first layer as the same action.
Step3: Repeat the actions in step2 for more layers. Just pay attention to the color changing of the beads, ensure the beads present the V mark.
Step4: When the beads making triangle achieve the size you need, then stop to replacing the single beads with two beads group as the picture shows.
Step5:Repeat step4 until you get another triangle.
Step6: Add the earring hooks. Apply five yellow 12/0 Glass Seed Beads and the earring hook, pay attention that the earring hook should be at the center among the beads; after finishing this, across pass the rest wire through the first one and tie a knot.
Step7: Prepare the dangling branches for your Bohemian Style Earring. The amount shall be odd number like 3,5,7 in general, 7 branches are enough.
Step8: Apply the separate branches to the whole product. So far, the whole processes are all finished.

Small tips while Beading Bohemian Style Earring:

1. Due to the small hole diameter of the 12/0 Glass Seed Beads, you should choose the thin nylon wire.

2. During the craft processes, do not pull the wire too tight.

3. While the beading processes, the wire may become curly at the end.

They are very pretty earrings and you're right, they'd go beautifully with a long flowing skirt. Thank you for the tutorial too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
