Take one length of purple soutache and two lengths of violet. Put them together, match the edges and work a few stitches in the middle, trying to go just through the groove. Attach one A bead (Fig. 1) and one E bead (Picture 2). Frame the E bead with soutache from both sides and go through all the six soutache cords right at the point where they meet under the bead, to secure them. Using Picture 3 as a guide, work out a pattern and decorate it in F, G, E from both sides (Fig. 1). Attach one C to the top part of each earring (Fig. 2) and bead around it, using F, G. Attach a jumpring to each pattern, going through the beads marked in Fig. 2. Attach the earwires.
