Earring manufacture procedure
We will leave the colours of components on your choice. We have chosen the colour combination – violet, white and yellow. Split each group of beads into two halves , thus you get sharp number of beads for each earring. Start with seed beads , size 3 mm. Alter gradually 1 pc seed bead, size 3 mm, 1 pc pearl bead, violet, another 1 pc seed bead 3 mm, followed 2 pc frosted yellow beads and finally string 1 pc seed bead 3 mm. Go on this procedure till you string all kinds of beads.
Keep in mind you produce just one piece of earring. Now take an eye pin and pull it through the second group of yellow beads. Take a harder pin for better manipulation. As soon as you complete the whole raw, pull the nylon through 3 mm seed beads, through round beads, violet, size 10 mm and finally through seed beads, size 3 mm
In the second step string alternatively 1 pc seed bead size 2mm, 1 pc frosted bead, white, size 6 mm,2 pcs seed beads, size 2 mm and following alternatively 4 pcs round beads ,violet with 3 pcs seed beads, size 2 mm. Repeat this group so long you meet the end of nylon. Now cut the nylon close to pin. Now you can process the group of violet beads, size 10 mm which you string on the nylon.... and the first internal part is completed.
Tight the nylon, make the knots and finish the earring. Make sure the knots are firm, you may use a drop of glue. Pull free ends through approx. 3 beads and cut them off. Use an eye pin, string on 1 pc yellow frosted bead, size 6 mm and 1 pc seed bead, size 2 mm. In the next step use linking pliers and make an eye and hang an earring on the African hook.
