Beaded Retro Earring

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Earring

What you need:

1)    Short Silver White bugle (size: 11/0)
2)    2 Large pearl (12mm)
3)    2 Small pearl (4mm)
4)    White Sewing thread and needle
5)    Earring hooks (2pcs)

Step 1: Cut a piece of thread around a meter long, string it into the needle hole and balance out the two ends.

Pass the threaded needle through the big pearl, leaving around 2 inches of thread behind.
Step 2: Add around 10 to 13 beads, measuring around the half sphere of the pearl to make sure enough beads are added to wrap half sphere of the pearl.

Pass the needle back through the pearl the same way - from bottom up.
Pull on both ends (the needle end and the 2 inches thread end) to tighten.

continue to add the same number of beads and sew through the pearl the same way until you have wrapped the entire pearl.

Step 3: Continue to add 2 beads and 1 small pearl. (left picture)

Add 2 or 3 beads to wrap around the half sphere of the small pearl, keep sew wrapping around the small pearl just like what you did with the big pearl until you have wrapped the whole small pearl.

Step 4:

Add the earring hook on by passing the needle through the loop at the end of the earring.

Loop the needle back into the piece by going back through the small pearl, 2 beads and all the way through so that it comes out from the very bottom of the large pearl.

Tie the threads (one end the 2 inch thread left from step 1 and the other end the thread from the needle. (tie a dead knot and cut away excess).

Make the other side of the earring by repeating step 1 to 4.
