Oh my, how very pretty and easy. The only difference is I will use thread and seed beads. I just experimented and it worked just great. I can think of so many color combinations to use. These will come in handy for more than earrings.mif done with seed beAds and attached to the end of a wide ribbon they would make beautiful book marks.

These beaded cross earrings are absolutely stunning! I would love to make them with shades of silver and purple.
