Pearls & Montees

Sharing a DIY earring i made before for a client. Simple yet very elegant.

I’ve always been fascinated with jewelries especially those that blings. So its no surprise that this piece catches my attention. I was new in beading when I first learned how to do this simple yet elegant earrings. The only problem then was that some of the materials were not available in the country where am at (Philippines).   So, in replacement to my missing montees I used bicones. This was a commissioned bracelet I made for a client.  As you can see in the photo it didn’t gave justice to the simple and bling effect that I like, the client however liked the finished product. 🙂

Its a blessing to have a husband who not only supports my hobbies but also understand my need to have materials such as montees. Haha! It was pure joy and relief when he bought me some Swarovski Montees in Rose color. He got it from Amazon or Ebay i think and quickly i tried to do this piece again this time as earrings.  And oh my! was all I’ve said after I finished the first part.  😍

Materials I used here are 6mm glass pearls, rose montees and 11/0 seed beads which I got from bead stores at Quiapo Manila (except montees).   You may also check the rest of the materials on the description box of the Youtube channel where I got it from.

This design has been a constant favorite of friends and clients alike. Very easy to make and those sparkly Swarovski Montees will definitely make you shine.  Hope you can give this a try. 🙂
