Starting with a flattened oval wooden bead and delica beads, I wove a spiral pattern around the core bead using peyote stitch. Peyote stitch is an off loom bead weaving stitch where each tiny bead is woven in by hand using multiple passes of thread. The tops and bottoms of the beaded beads are finished with tiny pearly white rocaille beads.
I added silver plated bead caps and silver plated wire and hung the lightweight beaded beads from long silver plated kidney earwires for a clean, contemporary look.
• Dimensions: The overall length from the very top of the ear wire to the bottom of the beaded bead is 2.75 inches (7 cm), and the beaded bead is .75 inches (1.9 cm) at the widest point.
