  4. When you have finished the wreath, please tie off your thread and remove your stop bead as shown in the video: How to Tie Off and Add New Thread in Bead Weaving.
  5. Open a jump ring and connect it through one of the "petals" on your flower shaped wreath and the loop on one end of your antique brass ornate flower connector link. Close the jump ring.
  6. Take your Vintaj arched ear wire and open the clasp in the back - slide the top loop of your ornate brass connector link onto the ear wire. Also slide on one Miyuki Delica 10/0 seed bead in matte metallic pink/green.
  7. Enjoy your lovely new earrings!
