I highly recommend her bead patterns, not only are they extremely affordable and easy to follow, but they are very versatile as well.

a drop bead (optional): Before you cut your thread, weave down to the bottom
seed bead on the right (highlighted in RED). String a seed bead, a drop bead

three seed beads form a picot. Continue up through the seed bead above the drop
bead and the bottom left seed bead on the earring (highlighted in RED). Weave
around through the earring and cut your thread.
