Seed Beaded American Beauty Earring Pattern

These earrings would be perfect for the 4th of July!
Feel free to use the pattern to make yourself a pair (or buy them in my Etsy shop!).
You will need to know how to do a two drop brick stitch and looped fringe.
Size 11/0 round or cylinder type beads will work best. I used Toho 11/0 seed beads in
cobalt silver lined, silver galvanized matte, ruby silver lined matte and white opaque (but any shade of red, white, blue and silver will work).

I did these in black and gold with the stars being pearl. This is only because I'm in the uk and they look stunning. I also made one with regular beads to match as a pendant, truly unique and fabulous. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
