This 15 page long tutorial contains over 40 photographs and digital illustrations, giving you clear and easy to follow instructions on how to create a pair of my Pretty in Red Earrings. Designed to be beaded with size 15/0 Miyuki Seed Beads and thread, these earrings started off as mini Rick Racks. Each earring measures 40mm across and is 15mm deep. 

I have also attached additional video instructions on how to gently turn your zipped Rick Rack into a blooming flower.
