Pattern Description:

These little tiny fans make perfect earrings, however, if you don't want earrings, feel free to turn them into tiny pendants or even decorations for wine glasses! (Wouldn't that be a great hostess gift?!) It only takes a handful of materials and if you don't have the copper links, try using any good stiff metal link that you have on hand.

I haven't given you color choices in the materials list. The colors are really up to you and you can use the opportunity to create a truly personalized set of earrings. There is a snapshot of my materials included in the PDF if you'd like to use a similar color scheme.

This is a slightly more advanced beadweaving project and it would be helpful to have a good working knowledge of beadweaving terms and to have worked beadweaving projects in the past.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • These fans are bitty, measuring just over an inch square.

Materials:

  • One 15mm link from MissFickleMedia (2 for earrings)
  • Size 8 Japnese Seed Beads (I used two different colors)
  • Size 11 Japanese Seed Beads
  • Size 15 Japanese Seed Beads
  • 10mm Daggers
  • Wildfire or Fireline Beading Thread
  • Beading Needle Size 10 or 12

You Will Also Need:

  • Earwires (if you choose to create earrings)
  • Jump Ring (if you choose to create a pendant from your fan)
