Bead By Bead

So today I have been beading. I started out the day doing simple earrings:

Simple beads threaded on an eye pin.

This afternoon I started a Native American style fringe earring. These are worked with very small seed beads added to a beading needed. You first start by making a ring and then working back through half of them to start the brick pattern. These take quite a while to complete but worth the effort. There are patterns on pinterest and on the Fire Mountain Gem website.
