Once you've threaded the beads, tie the knot in your wire and make sure you secure it on your crochet hook.  Ensure you have a three or four inches tail at the end. Then crochet chain seven and add a bead to every chain. Hold the bead snug with your left hand and wrap the hook and pull it tight. After you have your chain seven each with one bead, adjust them so that they are all facing out and do a slip stitch into your first stitch to create a ring. Then chain 11 while keeping your stitch uniformed by pulling it all the way through to the widest point of the crochet hook.

After that, come back down and slip stitch into the same spot you slip stitched to make a chain seven ring. Then fasten it off by pulling it through tightly. Grab the beginning and the end tail and wrap them around at the base of either one of the chains. To make it look nice and uniform, wrap it a few times, then use scissors and cut the tall close to the edge. Take the French hook and use the pliers to up the hook at the bottom, then slide your ring down then pinch it closed. That's it; you've finished your first earring; now you can move on do the second pair, always make two pairs one after the other or you may be left with just ne or they will not be similar.
