Material and Tools

Materials

A 16 mm sieve with 8 holes around its circumference; a 18-20 mm diameter round brooch base
 

Tools

A 0.20 mm nylon line; a thin needle; scissors; hot melt glue with a glue gun

Procedure

Step 1

The petal sepal

String 3x R onto a 1m long line. Tie off the line. Let the R swing slightly (the knot could block the hole of the R), (fig. no. 1).

Step 2

Thread the line through one of the tied R. String 9x R. Use the right-angle weave stitch to sew the projection. After connecting 4x R at the beginning, leave about 2-3 mm of free line. Tighten when sewing. Add 1x R and connect another 4x R. At the end, add 1x R and thread the line through the next 1x R from Step 1 (fig. no. 2a). Create the next two protections. Be careful when threading the line through the last R from Step 1. The knot will get in the way (fig. no. 2b).

Step 3

Create the 1st row using the peyote stitch. Thread the line through the lower R on the projection (fig. no. 3a). Add 1x R to each gap around the circumference of the projection. Add 1x R to the sides at the end of the projection and connect 1x R in the middle. Sew around all the projections (fig. no. 3b).

Step 4

Create the 2nd row using the peyote stitch. Thread the line through the lower R on the projection (fig. no. 4a). Add 1x R to the gaps along the circumference and at the top. Sew around all the projections (fig. no. 4b).

Step 5

Create the 3rd row using the peyote stitch. Thread the line through the lower R on the projection (fig no. 5a). Add 1x R to the gaps along the circumference and at the end of the projection. Sew around all the projections (fig. no. 5b).

Step 6

Thread the line through the circumference one more time. Sew on 1x R to the lower R in the dimple. Preferably thread the line through the top R using just the line without the needle. Carefully sew it in (fig. no. 6).

Step 7

Create the stigma (central rod)

String 3x RG. Thread the line through the central hole of the sepal from the outside and string 5x RG, 1x FPB and 3x R according to the color of the sepal. Thread the line through the FPB and RG and back through the hole in the sepal. Thread the line through the 1st R under the sepal from the opposite direction. String 2x R. There are 5x R under the sepal. Thread the line through them again. This will create a loop. Tie off the ends of the line. Pull the ends into the 2x R on the right and left-hand sides. Cut them off (fig. no. 7a).

Step 8

Create petal sepals in other colors.

Step 9

The earrings

String 8x R and 2x FPB onto the Creole wire. Alternate stringing the loop on a sepal and 1x FPB. Finish with a sepal loop. Add 2x FPB and 8x R. The number of outer R will depend on the diameter of the Creole. String the second Creole earring.

Step 10

Connect the holes on the closing mechanism on the Creole earrings and the loops of the earring hooks using rings.
