Round one end of the wire, with your pliers so the beads do not come off. Put the beads on your wire. I put mine on in segments of 3 for a total of 36. You can modify and create a bead pattern of your choice. Once you get the 36 beads on the wire, turn the other end of the wire, leaving room between the beads to attach the crochet work. NOTE: Be careful not to twist your wire to much or it will break. Attach the slip knot to the crochet hook. Attach the thread to the work with a slip stitch. Row 1: Work a single crochet, *chain 5, skip 3 beads, work a single crochet between the beads, chain 5, skip 3 beads, work a single crochet between the beads. Continue across from * repeating until you get to the end. Skip the last three beads, work a single crochet. Chain 1, turn. Row 2: *Work 3 single crochet in the chain 5 loop, work a picot, chain 3, slip stitch in the same single crochet, work 3 more single crochet in the same loop. Work a slip stitch in the single crochet. Continue across from *. When you get to the end, cut the thread and pull through. Sew in all the tails. Now you will take your loose wire ends, and insert each side through the center of the earring loop. Twist and secure, being careful not to twist to tight. Cut of any extra wire end. You can adjust your earring to many different shapes.
