Tip: If not using a bead stopper keep watch on your beads while making the earrings so they don't fall off of the beading wire.

  2. String on *1 seed bead and 1 leaf charm*. Repeat * through * twice, then string 1 more seed bead. Attach a bead stopper at one end of the wire. (Optional)
  3. Thread other end of the wire through a loop of 1 stitch-in link, then string on 1 seed bead, 1 crimp bead, and 1 seed bead, then pass wire through second loop of stitch-in link.
  4. Remove bead stopper at other end and thread through the second loop of the stitch-in link, then through seed bead, crimp bead, seed bead and first loop of stitch-in link.
