This 17 page long tutorial contains over 50 photographs giving you clear and easy to follow instructions on how to create these Spring Flower Earrings. Designed to be beaded with size 11/0 Toho seed beads and thread, these earrings started off as a Rick Racks. Each finished flower measures 55mm across and are just under 10mm deep. 

I have also attached additional video instructions on how to zip you Rick Rack and gently turn it into a blooming flower.
