Finishing. 
Follow the instructions. It’s easier than it looks. 
After finishing I put them in starch and leave them to dry – they are holding their shape nicely after that. Be careful if you are using wooden, coloured beads – they look nice, but can mess up the earring in the starch. 

If you come up with any problems or difficulties, write to me, I’ll be more than happy to help.
