Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Right Angle Weave

Pattern Description:

I was inspired by a picture of Tonatiuh, the sun god in Aztec mythology. You can read more about him here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonatiuh

These earrings are quick to create. If you have all your supplies ready you can have a pair ready to wear in about 1 hour. Each earrings uses only 12 Superduo beads so they are a great project for that small amount of Superduo beads you have left over from another project.

If you are not a fan of spike beads you can create the Tonatiuh earring with dagger beads or round beads in the center.
Also included in the pattern are instructions to make the earrings with Twin beads.

Copy Right (c)2014 Debra Schwartz - PLease, do NOT share, copy, sell or teach this beading pattern. Please give DatzKatz (Debra) credit for this design and link to her shop if you post pictures on the Internet.

I created my Tonatiuh earrings to look rustic but you can jazz them up with different bead colors.

I hope you have fun making my earring design.

If you have any questions or comments about my Tonatiuh earrings please contact me at msd.katz@hotmail.com

Thank you,
Debra of DatzKatz
