Figure 1
When you get to the top of the radish, twist the top of the wire a couple of times and start the first leaf.
After finishing the first leaf, thread the ends of the wire back into the row you just beaded and cut the extra.
Cut a new piece of wire around 8 inches (20.32 cm) long, and work the other leaf.
When you finish with the second leaf, twist the wire twice at the top and thread the ends through the top of the radish to connect it.
Cut the extra wire, playing around with the leaves until you like how the whole thing looks.
Stick the top wires through an earring wire.
Seal the ear wire with clear nail polish so that the radish doesn't fall off.
