Put a stop bead on your thread. Pick up an AVA bead from the outside, add an EVA bead in so the point is also at the top. Add a tubelet and bring the thread back up the second holes of the EVA and AVA beads. Add a tubelet on the exterior sides of the AVA bead. Bring the thread back through the base tubelet.
Repeat the same steps as above but in the opposite direction to make the mirrored side of the Mercury earring design.
Use tubelets and seed beads to line the exterior edge. Put a wireguard on the top for the earwire.
