Pearl Beaded Earrings
Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
These earrings were designed with a casual summer wedding in mind. Of course you can make them for any time and with any color thread but since June is the month for weddings, I thought it would be most appropriate to make them all white.

Work as for a double crochet but before pulling your loop through the last two loops on hook, pull up a bead then draw your loop through the last two loops on hook.
String on all beads but use only 12 beads per earring.
RND 1: Make a starting slip knot as you normally would for beginning any crochet project but do not chain anything. Instead, bring up 6 beads then ch1 to form a ring with the beads. You will be working between the beads in the ring for the next round.
RND 2: Ch3. Bddc dc in same place in ring. Work the following in each space between each bead around. Dc, bddc, dc. When you get back to the beginning, join w/slst to top of ch3.
Slst to the bddc, ch5, slst in same st. Fasten off and weave ends into back of work.
