International Beading Week 2021 – Free Project

 This year International Beading Week is 24th July – 1st August 2021 and I am delighted to be a Guest Ambassador for this exciting event. What better way to celebrate than with a free beading pattern!

Claire Earrings free beading patern for international beading week by Chloe Menage

International Beading Week takes place in the last week of July every year and was set up by the Beadworkers Guild. This year’s theme is tassels!

My free beading pattern shows you how to weave pretty embellished peyote bezels for rivolis and add flair with ready-made tassels for a pair of statement earrings. These components work equally well as simple pendants or dainty earrings without the extra drop/tassel embellishment.

This pattern assumes you are comfortable working with peyote in the round. If you need help with peyote please take a look at my Beginners Guide to Peyote tutorial Beginners’ Peyote Stitch (PDF). There is also a free video to accompany!

You can find out more about International Beading Week here. There are activities taking place all week, with free drop-in beading sessions, competitions and much more. Get involved and share your passion for beading!

I’d love to see your makes so don’t forget to share them with me on Instagram, Facebook or over in my Pinkhot Beading Facebook Group.

Happy #BeadingWeek!
