2x 4 mm rings; 2x Afro-hooks
A 0.20 mm line – 2 lengths of ca 80 cm; a sewing needle; scissors
Sew through each row several times so that it is well reinforced. Check the clearance of all the holes before you string the beads.
Alternately string 4x T and 4x R8 (fig. no. 1a) and tie them in a circle with a double knot (fig. no. 1b). Leave ca 8 cm free at the end of the line for sewing in.
Thread the needle through the second hole of the T (fig. no. 2a), add 1x Ch, 1x R8 and 1x Ch (fig. no. 2b) and thread the needle through the adjacent T (fig. no. 2c). Repeat this all the way around the circle (fig. no. 2d).
The line will emerge from the T (fig. no. 3a) and you now need for it to emerge from the rounded side of the Ch so that you can pass to the second hole of the Ch and so that the line emerges from the straight side of the Ch (fig. no. 3b). Then add 1x Ch, 1x R8 and 1x Ch and pull the needle through the two Ch, so that the line once again emerges from the straight side of the Ch (fig. no. 3c + 3d). Repeat this around the circle so that you close the circle (fig. no. 3e). Tie a knot in the line and sew in both ends.
Thread the line through the circle with a rocaille (fig. no. 4a) and add the Afro-hook before closing the ring. Then close the ring and you have completed one earring (fig. no. 4b).
Repeat steps 1 to 4 so that you have two earrings (fig. no. 5).
