Equipment used:

Steps of the realization :

Boucles d'oreilles Maxi Pompon et Tissage de perles - Etape 1

Start by printing the chart below, in 2 copies (it will be helpful to you "box" the beads to the as your 2 weaves)

Start your weave : I chose to use the technique peyote (but you can adapt your model in brickstitch, if you prefer this technique), put a referral of a meter of wire around (I prefer not to cut me entirely my referral, and always leave my coil on the other side). If those sweet little words barbarians make you shudder, you can get a jump on the blog of Virginia that details these techniques with its clear explanations : etoilespistache.wordpress.com)

Weave your pattern starting at the level of the small black arrow. You can check on your printed chart as your weaving. Weave the first half, and then weave the other.
Do not cut your thread, and keep your needle threaded : you can, however, iron in the few last beads to solidify your book (until you get to one of the ends of the weaving).

The time of the presentations is here : remove the pom-pom silky on the weave, and wrap up the weaving around, to take a somewhat tubular shape.

Assemble the 2 sides : the pattern is created to fit together perfectly, on the other hand, according to the diameter of the pom-pom. Weave them together, and then back again on the "suture", in order to make it solid. To finish, check back in a few beads (as you get near the top of the pom-pom, to link), and then go through 2 or 3 times through the pom pom you hanging on the pearl in front : this will allow the weave does not drag along the pom-pom.

Then insert the earring in the ring junction. Close carefully using the flat-nose pliers.
You have completed your first loop : it remains for you to recommend to the completion of the second !
And if you became(e) totally addict, only remedy : create others with new colors ! (and why not try to create your own pattern ;) )
