10x (the earrings: 10x) (F)
The necklace: metal crimp beads (RM); 4 mm rings; a carabiner; a counter-ring; a 0.38 mm white wire
The earrings: 35 – 50 mm eye pins; earring hooks
A 0.20 mm nylon line; a thin needle; scissors; snipping pliers; flat nose pliers (handling the rings the crimp beads); needle node pliers
The sewn spheres
String 3x the purple variant and 2x in blue. The F have five petals. As such, the hole leads between the petals. String the F through the centre of the petal.
Cut off about 70 cm of line. Thread it through an R 2x so that it acts as a stop bead about 15 cm from the beginning of the line.
String 1x FPB12.
String 1x R, 1x FPB1, 1x F, 1x FPB1 and 1x R. Thread the line through the FPB12 once again.
Repeat Step 3 another 4 times, i.e. for a total of 5 times.
Sew through all five "ribs" again. Omit this step, if you are using a thicker line.
Only sew through the last "rib" via 1xs R, 1x FPB1 and 1x F. Remove the rocaille stop bead. Sew the end of the line into the remaining part (1x R and 1x FPB1). Tie 2–3 knots. Pull the ends into the surrounding material. Cut it off.
Cut off 60 cm of wire. Create an end loop. String 1x RM, 1x FPB4, 1x RM and 1x FPB4. Bend the end of the wire back. Crimp both RM.
String 28x FPB4, 1x R, 1x FPB5, 1x R, 1x FPB8 and 1x R.
String the sewn balls. Alternate the colors. String 1x FPB5 around each of them. String 1x R between each FPB5.
Repeat Step 8 as a mirror image.
Create a second end loop. Cut off the wire after completing the stringing.
Use the rings to attach the carabiner and the counter-ring to the end loops in the wire.
String 1x FPB5, a sewn ball and 1x FPB5 onto an eye pin. Shorten the protruding wire to about 8 - 10 mm. Grasp the end of the wire between the points of the needle nose pliers and twist a loop.
Insert an earring hook before fully closing the loop.
