These cute little earrings are done in both brick stitch and loom (or square/ladder stitch). The main part of the earrings is done first, then the top and bottom. Because the top and bottom taper off, they are done in brick stitch and have a separate pattern for them. When you buy this pattern, you get both parts to the file. The first part is the main section of the earring, and the second part being both the top & bottom of the earring.
I added my version of the earrings, done in seed beads, as an added photo, so that you can see what it looks like done in both seed beads and Miyuki Delica beads.
I’d like to thank Karen Etelman for testing this pattern, and for her photos of it during the making of it and after it was finished.
