Click the button below to add this project to your Ravelry queue:


Materials:
  • Crochet thread (thread shown is Aunt Lydia's Bamboo Thread)
  • B (2.25 mm) crochet hook
  • 24 small glass beads, plus a few extra for good measure
  • 2 jump rings
  • Small needle for threading beads (I used a cross stitch needle)
  • Tapestry needle (for weaving in ends)
  • Scissors
  • Needle nose pliers (optional if you need help opening jump rings)


Sizing:
  • Earring medallion with beads measures about 1 inch across


Instructions:

Before you begin string 12 (plus a few extra) beads onto the thread with a needle.  Push beads back a bit and you're ready to crochet.

Ch 6 and join with a sl st in furthest ch from the hook to form a ring.  (If you prefer magic ring, feel free to use this method instead)

Round 1: Ch 3, then work 11 dc into the center of the ring, join to close round with a sl st.

Round 2: Ch 1, then a sc in first st.  Work 2 sc in each st around circle, incorporating a bead into the second sc of each group.  Join to close round with a sl st and fasten off.  Note: to keep beads in the front of work pop them to the front as you work each sc with bead.

Weave in ends and proceed to "Finishing & Assembly" section below.


Finishing & Assembly:


Add a jump ring to top edge of medallion and attach a french hook to jump ring.  Repeat instructions to make second earring.  Happy crocheting lovelies!
