CROSSING BORDERS earrings beading tutorial

(8 customer reviews)


The name ‘Crossing Borders’ was chosen by fellow beader, friend, and member of the Storytelling Beading Club.

Tanja says:

“When I saw the earrings, I thought the name should be something with a ‘cross’ and the name ′′ Crossing Borders ′′ came to me. I thought that was a beautiful name for the earrings, especially because of the symbolism behind it: every Tuesday and every Friday fans of Erika’s designs come together to chat, laugh, and bead… We all come from different countries and cross borders every week to be together…”

    A pattern that is easy to follow but also versatile. You can not only make earrings, bracelets or pendants from the same pattern, it is also cleverly using the different sizes of tila beads to achieve a variety of looks and designs. A favorite.
