2. Slide on three 8x6mm glass rondelles onto the wire, and turn another wrapped loop, one mm or so above the top bead. Again, don’t make your wraps too bulky.
3. Guide your wire around the top rondelle to the right, and wrap beneath twice, in the same coiling direction that you have been working in already.
4. Repeat this process with the 2nd rondelle…
5. …and the third and lowest rondelle. Wrap your wire *over* the coils you made in step 1, and guide the wire up the left hand side of the lowest rondelle. Coil the wire above this rondelle and over the wraps you made previously.
6. Repeat this process with the second and first rondelle, so that each one has a snug little wire ‘window’ around it. Repeat in full for second earring, and attach handmade earwires to complete.
