Hand Beaded Earrings are Addicting!

It seems like when I start doing these earrings I can't stop and by the time you do stop you have made like 10 pairs of them!

This particular bead work is called brick stitch or cheyenne stitch which is in reference to how the foundation rows are made and worked.

I have done bead work for a VERY long time and I always return to it. It is very soothing to sit and bead. It does take a 2 to 3 hours to complete 1 set of earrings as each bead is sewn to the next one bead at a time!
