Adding three beads at a time in the order they appear in the color chart. Put on first 6 beads, three white and three orange, then put needle and thread back through the first 3 white and up through the three orange. Add next three, orange and two black, go down through the three orange and back up through the orange and two black. Next add three black and continue in this manner until your foundation row is finished.
Now to start the top part of your earring doing one row at a time and following color chart to the left add one orange bead and take needle down through the orange and black bead in last row bring needle under the thread between these two beads and then up through the orange bead your adding, Next do the same for the next color orange bead continue on till all the row is done.
Remembering that you are now working from the opposite end add the next row in the same manner as row two.
Step Three to Twelve:
Always working for the opposite sides when starting a row continue your pattern as the same for step two until you get to step Thirteen.
Continue with pattern until you have reached only two beads at the top. Now you will add a loop to hold your finding or ear wire. Add 4 white beads and go through the first one bead on the opposite side of where your thread comes out then up through other bead and two white beads do this a few times to give strength to your work.
Bringing your needle and thread down through one side of your work till it comes out the end on one side, you are now ready to add the dangles to complete your tiger. Following chart here for first dangle add three white beads as in pattern or if you are at other end add black orange and white bead, bring needle back up through the last two beads and the three in the foundation row then back down through next three beads in foundation row, continue this way until all your dangles are finished tie off thread and add your ear wire.
