Step 1

What we will need...

Step 1

Step 2

Cut approximately 120cm length of thread and thread it on a needle. Then we alternately thread ten SuperDuo SD beads and 10 TOHO T1 beads

Step 1

Step 3

The beads are shifted to the end of the thread about 10cm from the end and we tie to form a circle of beads.

Step 1

Step 4

We go through the needle through one T1 bead and one SD on the left from the tied knot. We move the thread slightly hiding the tied knot in the T1 bead.

Step 1

Step 5

We return with a needle through the second hole of the same SD bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

We thread 4 SD beads.

Step 1

Step 7

Again, we pass the needle through the same hole of the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 8

We go through another SD bead.

Step 1

Step 9

We return with a needle through the second hole of the same SD bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

We go through another SD bead from the main circle.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

We thread 3 SD beads.

Step 1

Step 12

We go through the SD bead from the previous "flower".

Step 1

Step 13

Now we pass the needle through two successive SD beads of the second "flower".

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 14

We have a second flower ready. By repeating the previous step, we create another seven.

Step 1

Step 15

We return with a needle through the second hole of the same SD bead.

Step 1

Step 16

We go through the next two SD beads of the last flower being created.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 17

We thread two SD beads.

Step 1

Step 18

Again, we go through all three SD beads of the flower being created.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 19

The next stage is to supplement the funds in the resulting flowers.

We thread one TOHO T2 bead.

Step 1

Step 20

We stick into the hole of the SD bead on the opposite side of the same flower.

Step 1

Step 21

We move the bead so that it sits nicely in the middle of the flower.

Step 1

Step 22

We return the needle through the second hole of the same SD bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 23

The first measure is ready. We complete the next nine in the same way by repeating the steps from step 11.

This way the flowers are ready

Step 1

Step 24

We go with the needle to the top of the work to create a rim of the earring. To do this, we pass the needle through the second hole of the same SD bead.

Step 1

Step 25

Then we go through two consecutive SD beads in the same flower.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 26

We turn the thread by passing the needle through the second hole of the same SD bead.

Step 1

Step 27

We thread three beads: T1, T3, T1 and go through the next SD bead on the top of the earring.

Step 1

Step 28

We take one T1 bead and go through SD.

Step 1

Step 29

Now we thread 3 T1 beads and again we go through the top, digging into the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 30

By alternating with one and three T1 beads, we form the edge of the earring.

Step 1

Step 31

We tie a knot between the beads SD and T1 and pass the thread with the edge of the earring a few beads away.

Step 1

Step 32

We cut the thread.

Step 1

Step 33

We also thread the other end of the thread through a few nearest beads to hide the thread and cut it.

Step 1

Step 34

Twist open a jump ring using jewelry pliers.

Step 1

Step 35

We put the jump ring through the T3 bead and twist it using your pliers to close it. 

Open another jump ring. 

Step 1

Step 36

We place the jump ring through the hole in the ear wire and twist close to secure. The earring is ready. 


Please note - the materials list may differ from the original design and the earwires in the list require a bonny crystal gluing into them.
