Pattern for Dewdrop Earrings
Wind 2 shuttles CTM with three beads on shuttle 1.
SR1: Put a bead on the back of the hand before beginning. Work 6 ds with shuttle one. Turn the ring ready for the second half of the split ring, move the bead to the start of the second half of the split ring, work 6 ds, close split ring.
Work SR 2 and 3 the same way. Work a ring at the top, hiding the thread from shuttle 2 inside the first half of the ring and adding a hook.
There's a longer PDF version with pictures, you can find a link on the right hand side bar.
This is a versatile pattern, you can vary the size of the thread, the size of the beads, the stitch count. For these I've used size 10 thread and a 6/6 count, but for others I've used size 20 thread and an 8/8 count.
