size 10 thread- any color
size 7 crochet hook
A pair of hook earrings (or you could use leverbacks too)
2 small to medium sized beads
2 Jumprings (optional)
Any type of stiffner
DC- Double Crochet
Sc- Single Crochet
Ch - Chain
Sl St- Slip Stitch
Gauge does not matter, but you want to keep the same tension throughout both peices.
Before Starting: Before starting your chain or making your slip knot, slip the bead onto the thread. Tie a triple knot so it wont come off. Now, push the bead down to the knot. Holding the bead, wrap it around your hook and tie it on, but do not make a knot, instead, push or pull the tie down to the bead, that is the start of your chain.
Round 1: Chain 30. Sl St to 2nd ch from the bead making a ring around your bead. You should now have your bead hanging in the middle of the ring.ch 3
Round 2: Dc 44 times into the ring, sl st to ch 3.
Round 3:Now when you are done take your favorite way to block, and block your work. I used 50% water and 50% white glue. I laid them out on the blocking board and used a paint brush to soak them, turned them over and did the same thing. Then I pinned them into shape,and let them dry.
When dry Attach the jump ring to the chain 10 area and then onto the hook earring.
