The procedure:

The "rhomboid" earrings

Step 1
Link up the individual rows; 2x V, 2x 2 V, 2x 3 V and 1x 4 V. String the V. The stringing must be loose and the V must still be able to move after the linking of the eye pins. Create a loop. You need about 8 mm free at the end. Grasp the edge of the wire and twist it around the point of the needle nose pliers. Gently fold it back so that the loop is centrally above the V. Both loops must be twisted in the same way.
