Triple Oval Earrings Project Step by Step PDF

The PDF for this great project is linked here.

The family of popular PRECIOSA Candy™ Pressed Beads has expanded.

Currently, we offer the original Candy™ beads and the decorative PRECIOSA Candy Rose two-hole cabochon.  Later this spring the new Oval beads will arrive.

The oval base comes in 3 sizes; 4 x 6 mm, 6 x 8 mm and 10 x 12 mm. There are many options for combining this bead, for example, with the two-hole PRECIOSA Twin™ or PRECIOSA Bow™ shapes. On the other hand, you can give your costume jewelry a more delicate look by combining it with the more delicate PRECIOSA Rocaille Seed Beads. The sequence of all three sizes placed one after the other is also interesting.

Debra used the new Terra Intensive beads to surround her Candy oval beads with spectacular color.

The link to everything used in the earrings shown is here.

The alternate color (pink/Ivory) links are here.

The red and gold earring products are here.

All the tools used are here.
