Yes, I’m still playing with the crochet wire … I hope you’re not sick of seeing it yet because I’m actually loving it! This time I tried adding some beads to wire to make these pretty medallion earrings. Very fun!

Beaded Single Crochet (bsc): Insert hook into specified stitch and draw up a loop, move bead up the wire to rest next to hook, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook.
Beaded Double Crochet (bdc): Yarn over, insert hook into specified stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, move bead up the wire to rest next to hook, yarn over and pull through remaining 2 loops on hook.
Thread 24 beads onto your wire.
Round 1: Ch1 (does not count as stitch), work 8 bscs in 2nd ch from hook, join — 8 sts.
Round 2: Ch 2, move 1 bead up to hook, ch 1 (counts as 1st dc), work 1 bdc in same st as join, work 2 bdc in remaining sts around, join — 16 sts.
Fasten off leaving a tail of approx. 6 inches.
Add a crimp bead to the tail. Weave tail through the ear wire and back through the crimp bead. Flatten crimp bead to secure tail. Cut tail right after crimp bead.
