1: Convert the headpins into eyepins by trimming off the heads and creating a loop at one end as shown.
2: String one 6mm glass round; form a simple loop. Set aside. Cut the cord in half and set one aside.
3: Make a 3” fold at one end of the cord. Form a larks head knot around the brass ring as shown.
4: Use the short end of cord to form an overhand knot against the previous larks head knot. Trim ends to 1/8”. Using the long end of cord, form a half-hitch knot around the ring.
5: String a 4mm bead and form 3 half-hitch knots. Repeat until entire ring is covered. Form an overhand knot against the last half-hitch knot. Trim ends to 1/8”.
6: Attach the bead link made in step one to the brass ring between the first and final knots. Attach an ear wire to the bead link.
7: Repeat steps 1-4 to complete the second earring.
