Watch the video or check our step by step instructions on how to make these earrings.
Start by attaching the C-lon thread to the Square. Make sure to use a long thread (about 1 meters), this way you don't have to finish and knot your thread after each row. For this look, you start right under a corner of the square (halfway). Use a double knot with some jewelry glue. Put your C-lon thread trough the Beading needle and thread 1 bead on it. Put you needle and thread over and under the square. After that, you go back into the bead, but make sure to go through the bottom of the bead. Pull on the thread to make sure it is tight and thread another bead on to you needle. Repeat this progress until you have finished the row (about 18 beads).
For the second row, we have to do the following:
When you look closely at your first row, you will see that in between each bead the thread made a 'bridge' (you can also look at the example). Put a new colored bead on to your needle and put the needle though the 'bridge'. Go back into the bead, again though the bottom. Thread a new bead on to you needle and repeat this progress until the second row is finished (also 18 beads).
For the last row with the glass pearls, you will do the same as the second row. Only this time you skip one bridge, because the glass pearls are bigger.
To finish off your peace, go back through the first beads of row 1 and 2 and knot the C-lon thread around the connector. Use a double knot again and secure it with some jewelry glue.
Lastly attach the earring hooks to the square, and they are ready to wear!
