We present a computer-oriented method of producing pictures of Bers embeddings of the Teichmüller space of once-punctured tori. The coordinate plane is chosen in such a way that the accessory parameter is hidden in the relative position of the origin. Our algorithm consists of two steps. For each point in the coordinate plane, we first compute the corresponding monodromy representation by numerical integration along certain loops. Then we decide whether the representation is discrete by applying Jørgensen’s theory on the quasi-Fuchsian space of once-punctured tori.
