I don't know why I haven't thought of this before! I played around with some simple bead weaving ideas for a few minutes and came up with these.
10 - 4mm pearl beads
16 - 11/0 gold seed beads
2 - small pearl (or similarly colored) beads for the back of earring
2 - earring post backs
fishing line (or clear bead thread)
Big eye beading needle (optional)
Note: Since these earrings are tiny (finished they measure about 10 or 11mm across the middle) I am using larger beads in the tutorial below. It doesn't change anything - they are just easier to photograph clearly!
Since the front of the earring isn't flat, I put mine face down in some beads to hold it upright while it was drying. Let them dry overnight and you're all done!
