tubular herringbone earrings
This is my own pattern for the earrings. I made it before with red, green, blue and gold beads. It got lots of compliments so now I'm trying in different colors. I start off with 12 beads (2 of one color, 2 of gold, etc) Go back into them by 2 at a time and connect first to last set. Then start off by going up and down: 1 down and 3 up. The fringe is usually about 6 beads or so. The gold here is a bit heavier than the other beads but the earrings aren't that heavy so it's good as the gold might tarnish if worn next to the skin.
