1. Create a wrapped loop with only one or two twists around the loop of your earwire. Thread the wire down through the larger of your two beads.
2. Create a small wrapped loop at the bottom of the large bead. Instead of cutting off the wire, wrap it upwards around the bead in several large loops.
3. At the top, wrap the end firmly around the wrapped loop that you already made and clip off the wire end.
4. With another shorter piece of wire, create a very small simple loop at the end. Thread on a small gold bead and the smaller of your two lucite beads. Create a wrapped loop around the wrapped loop of the larger bead.
