The beaded bead pattern by Laura Landrum in Bead & Button's February 2012 issue seemed a perfect way to use up the leftover crystals and pearls from this necklace.
So I made two beaded beads to wear for earrings, and a third in darker shades just because. Aren't they pretty?
I strung the beads onto a headpin with a crystal and silver bead cap on each end, and then added silver ear wires:
Perfect for the next time Mr. Beadgirl and I go out for, uh, pizza and a movie.
