Guess what inspired these cherry earrings! Such fun to wear, light as air and so easy to make.
Use 18.5 micron Superfine Merino wool to make the felted beads in a size to suit, about a 1/2 inch diameter works well.
Tie a firm knot in one end of a length of waxed cord, thread on one bead, then pass cord through the earwire loop.
Tie a loose knot and add the second bead and then tie off with another loose knot.
TIP: Do not firmly tie the last two knots until the earrings are equal in length.
