Materials (for a pair):

  • 2 yards waxed Nymo or C-Lon thread, size D, or 6 lb. FireLine
  • 34 size 11/0 seed beads or Delica beads
  • 16 size 4mm bicone crystals (or any type size 4mm beads will also work—round beads, fire-polished, etc.)

  • two one-inch lengths of chain (or longer if you prefer)

Step 1: Thread your needle with 1 yard Nymo, C-Lon or Fireline.

String two seed beads, a fire-polished bead, two seed beads, a bicone crystal, a seed bead and a bicone crystal.

Leaving about a 6-inch tail, tie the beads in a circle with a double knot:

Step 2: Go through the two seed beads to the right of the knot and down through the fire-polished bead:

Step 3: String two seed beads, a bicone crystal, a seed bead, a bicone crystal and two seed beads.

Go around and back down through the fire-polished bead:

Step 4: Go back up through the two bottom right seed beads, the bicone crystal, the seed bead, the bicone crystal and the top right seed bead:

Step 5: String a bicone crystal and two seed beads.

Go through an end link on your chain and then back through the last seed bead that you just strung:

NOTE: If you prefer not to use chain, you can attach your earring directly to your earwire or a jump ring instead.

Step 6: String a seed bead and a bicone crystal.

Go down through the seed bead, the bicone crystal, the seed bead, the bicone crystal and the seed bead (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 7: String a bicone crystal, a seed bead and a bicone crystal.

Go back up through the seed bead, the bicone crystal, the seed bead, the bicone crystal and the seed bead (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 8: Go back up through the bicone crystal and seed bead, through the end chain link and the down through the seed bead and bicone crystal (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 9: Go back down through the seed bead, the bicone crystal, the seed bead, the bicone crystal, the seed bead, the bicone crystal and the seed bead (all beads highlighted in RED):

Step 10: String three seed beads.

Go around and back through the seed bead that you exited at the end of the last step, forming a picot:

Weave your way back into the earring, knot and cut your thread.

Thread your needle with the tail from Step 1, weave your way into the earring, knot and cut your thread.

Attach the other end of the chain to your earring finding.
