Tutor: Meg Thompson

Donut forget to put on your earrings! And how could you with these sweet donut-shaped bead embroidered ones? A handful of beads is all it takes! Learn how to work with negative space in bead embroidery and focus on neatly finishing edges, both inside and outside the donut shape. A dangling drop completes the design for a visually pleasing adornment for your ears.
