    Designer Tereza is back with another stunning pair of earrings. A tubular peyote stitch embellishes an endless ring to hold the gorgeous bezelled pear drop crystal. These Hula Hoop Earrings are sure to turn heads.
    Think about which color thread you would like to use as it will be visible on the outside edge of the ring. Use a size 10 or 12 needle. Start with four seed beads and thread around the ring and back through all four beads. Go through the first bead one more time. From this point you are ready to start your tubular Peyote stitch.
    Next you will bezel the chaton with a new piece of thread. Put on 22 delica beads. Use a regular Peyote stitch to complete. Add 15/0s to the gaps. Insert the Chaton and use 15/0s to close the bezel on the front. Add the earwire. Watch Tereza in the Hula Hoop Earrings tutorial for step-by-step directions.
    Connect the two pieces. Add on the bezelled pear drop crystal. Knot the thread and burn the edges.
