Earrings: Eye

I found this tutorial on YouTube about some beaded earrings, not too long ago by BeadsFriends or Sarubest. She has a lot of different craft tutorial about beading and also about polymer clay, so I recommend you to take a look at her channel :)

These pair of earrings are made basically with circular brick stitch around a 12mm pearl/bead. For mine I used 12mm Swarovski pearl in Maroon, 4mm round Czech glass beads in bronze, 4mm jet black Swarovski bicones, 11/0 seed beads by Miyuki and Toho, 15/0 seed beads from Miyuki and 3mm bugle beads by Miyuki also.
The tutorial is in two parts, first on how to make the center itself, and then there's a separate tutorial on how to do the points.
I really like how they turned out with the points, they almost look like eyes in my opinion :)

Since they are pretty dark, the pair I made I decided to attach gunmetal plated earring-hooks for these, and I think they look just right - you can't see it that well on the picture, I think.

They look beautiful - don't you just love YouTube. I forget how much they have on there.

@Charters thank you :)
Yes, there's a lot of different things out there on YouTube if you look around. I'm currently trying to master the beaded crochet spiral rope and came across a really detailed and helpful tutorial on it as well :)
