Seed Bead Santa Claus Earrings

The NORAD tracker is showing that Santa is already on his way to Bead Crumbs!

I did not plan to work on a Christmas design in the heat of the summer but a favorite customer returned with an early order for multiple pairs of Mr. & Mrs. Claus earrings. I'm grateful for this unseasonable start because it gives me a lot more time to enjoy the process rather than feeling rushed.

Back in 2011, I made my first Santa charm based on a bead pattern by Jennifer Creasey. I later added a Mrs. Claus to join Santa.

In 2014 I decided to create my own full body jolly Santa design. Naturally, Mother Christmas followed and the happy couple was reunited.

Request your own seed bead holiday earrings.

This holiday earring set is made with size 11 Delica seed beads and Fireline thread using a modified brick stitch method that incorporates multiple passes of thread through the tiny seed beads. Santa has a small round acrylic bead attached to his floppy hat and the pair is wearing traditional red suits. The ear wires are non tarnish, hypo-allergenic, stainless steel French hooks.

Measurements are:
Santa - approximately 2 cm. at its widest point and 2.75 in height.
Mrs. Claus - about 1.5 cm wide and 2.5 cm height.

While this set is not available for sale, you can place a request for your own pair of beaded Mr. & Mrs. Claus by visiting Bead Crumbs on Etsy and clicking the "Contact Shop Owner" button.

Feel free to let me know if you have any bead suggestions for me. If I'm able to come up with a design for your idea, I'll post it here on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
