1. Put a stop bead on the end of the DragonThread. Pick up a Tubelet, an 11/0 seed bead, a Potomac pearl, a seed bead and another Tubelet. Bring the needle back up through the first Tubelet and pull the beads into a triangular shape. Reinforce by sewing through all the beads again.

2. Watch the Sparrow’s Nest Woven Herringbone Crystal Bezel tutorial to follow along with Anna as she guides you through the beaded earring pattern. Teaching you how to create an overlapping Herringbone stitch to frame the Potomac crystal rivoli.

3. When you have finished the Herringbone stitch, bring the needle and thread to the back of the project. Drop a Potomac crystal chaton into a leverback earwire with crystal setting. Pinch the prongs down to hold the crystal securely. Create a small loop out of 11/0 seed beads to slide the leverback earwire into.
