11. Complete the Fourth and Fifth Figure Eights
Stitch the next two figure eights, following the pattern chart. After you complete the fifth figure eight, pass through the existing B bead in the lower part of the very first figure eight. Pull the thread taught.
This positions your needle to complete the final figure eight.
12. Complete the First Loop in the Final Figure Eight
Pick up 1C, 1D, 1A, and 1D and then, pulling the thread around in a counterclockwise direction, pass through the next existing C bead in the lower part of the first figure eight.
Pass through the first C that you just picked up, and pull the thread taut. The completes the first loop in the final figure eight.
13. Complete the Second Loop in the Final Figure Eight
Pick up 1E, and pass down through the next C in the fifth (second to last) figure eight. Pull the thread taut.
You can now weave-in and end both thread tails.
14. Slide the Beadwork Onto an Ear Wire
Slide the beadwork directly onto one of the ear wires by passing the wire through one of the figure-eight loops.
Optionally, use round nose pliers to gently squeeze the top of the earring loop to narrow. This helps to keep the beadwork from sliding out.
