This is one of the first pairs of earrings I made. I made them with seed beads. They have now been made into a pattern using Miyuki Delica 11/0 Beads. This pattern is made using brick stitch for the hat, and then using fringing for the face and beard. It was fun to make, and my tester had fun making them.
I’d like to thank Karen Etelman for testing and photographing this pattern for me. She did a wonderful job.
