Step 7:
String all the O1 onto the creole wire. Be careful not to deform the shape. Start adding them to the wire from the beginning of the stringing. You can then adjust the length of the stringing by either stringing another O1, R and O2 or by shortening the stringing.

Step 8:
Crimp the creole tube in the middle with the wire using the snipping pliers.

Step 9:
Sew in the knots in the outer protrusions of the stringing: the first securing knot between the R and the second immediately after the O2.

Step 10:
Hang the creole wire on an earing hook using a ring.
