Step One

Cut approximately 1m of wildfire thread and add on a size 10 beading needle to each end.

Step Two

With the right hand needle, feed on 5 SuperDuos and cross the left needle through the same hole of the last bead in the opposite direction. Pull both threads to create the first 'daisy'.

Step Three

Pass the right needle through the top hole of the last bead and then pass the left needle through the top hole of the same bead but in the opposite direction.

Step Four

With the right needle pick up 4 more SuperDuos and pass the left needle through the same hole of the last bead added but in the opposite direction (note the 5th petal of this flower is part of the first daisy).

Step Five

Pass the needles in opposite directions through the top hole of the last petal as per step 3.

Step Six

Pass the left needle through the top hole of the petal adjacent to it, then with the right needle pick up 3 more SuperDuos (there are already two petal in this daisy from the existing flowers).

Step Seven

Pass the left needle through the same hole of the last bead and pull the threads so the third daisy is formed. Pass the needles in opposite direction through the top hole of the last petal, then feed the left needle through the top hole of the petal adjacent to it (note you should always be joining two different daisies together rather than two petals of the same one).

Step Eight

Add 3 SuperDuos on the right needle, pass the left needle through the last bead, then pass the needles in opposite directions through the top hole. Pass the left needle through the adjacent petal.

Step Nine

Repeat step 8 to make another daisy but this time when you pass the left needle through the petal adjacent to it, you pass it through two petals.

Step Ten

Pick up 2 SuperDuos with your right needle (because you already have 3 petals in this flower) then continue in the same way, when you pull this tight it should naturally curve upwards.

Step Eleven

Repeat the 5 petal daisy method in the following sequence:

  • Two petals linked so add 3 SuperDuos on the right needle.
  • Pass left needle through two adjacent petals, add on 2 SuperDuos.
  • Pass left needle through two adjacent petals, add on 2 SuperDuos.
  • Pass left needle through two adjacent petals, add on 2 SuperDuos.
  • Pass left needle through three adjacent petals, add on 1 SuperDuo.

Step Twelve

This time pass the left needle through all 4 remaining available holes, reinforce it by going through all of them a couple of times, then when your threads come out opposite each other, tie a double knot followed by a single knot.

Step Thirteen

Pass both needles through 5 x 8/0 pearl ceylon seed beads, then seperate the threads and add a 2mm silver seed bead on each thread. Pass both needles through a blue SuperDuo and then add the same beads in reverse order.

Step Fourteen

Add 6 x 2mm Silver Beads on the right needle then pass the left needle through the same 6 beads in the opposite direction. Tie off both threads.

Step Fifteen

Add a shepherds hook earring finding to the silver bead loop to complete the earring.

Step Sixteen

Repeat steps 1-15 to make a matching earring to complete the pair.
