It's been a while I make free tutorial. lol You only need seed beads and some pearls to complete them.

Materials for the dark greens earrings
- 2 grams Miyuki round seed beads 11/0 - #2008
- 2 grams Miyuki round seed beads 11/0 - #3318
- 2 pcs. Pearl round 6mm - white
- 2 pcs. Pearl round 4mm - white
- Earrings hooks

Optional : 2 pcs. Miyuki round seed beads 15/0 -#2008

Materials for the dark blue earrings
- 2 grams Matsuno round seed beads 11/0 - blue iris
- 2 grams Miyuki round seed beads 11/0 - #533
- 2 pcs. Pearl round 6mm - white
- 2 pcs. Pearl round 4mm - white
- Earrings hooks



Abbreviation
- Miyuki 11/0, matte green = 11/0A
- Miyuki 11/0, opaque green = 11/0B

Instruction


1. Cut the comfortable length of thread. Pick up twelve 11/0A. Pass through all beads twice. Exit at the first 11/0A (red arrow).


2. Pick up 11/0B, 11/0A and 11/0B. Pass through the third 11/0A (red arrow).


3. Repeat step 2 all around. Exit at 11/0A (red arrow).


4. Pick up pearl 6mm. Pass through 11/0A at the opposite side (red arrow).


5. Pass back through pearl 6mm, 11/0A (red arrow), 11/0B and 11/0A (blue arrow).


6. Pick up two 11/0A, 11/0B and two 11/0A. Pass through 11/0A at the next arc (red arrow).



7. Repeat step 6 all around. When you finish, you should exit at 11/0A (red arrow). Pass through 11/0B, 11/0A and 11/0B (blue arrow).


8. Pick up three 11/0B. Pass through the previous 11/0B (red arrow). Continue through the next three 11/0A and 11/0B (blue arrow).


9. Repeat step 8 all around. When you finish, you should pass through 11/0B (red arrow). Just continue through 11/0A, 11/0B and two 11/0A (blue arrow).


10. Pick up three 11/0B. Pass through 11/0A (red arrow). Continue along the next three 11/0A, 11/0B and four 11/0A (blue arrow).


11. Repeat step 10 all around. Exit at the single 11/0B (red arrow).


12. Pick up three 11/0A. Pass through the second 11/0B (red arrow).


13. Pick up three 11/0A. Pass through the next single 11/0B (red arrow).


14. Repeat step 12 and 13 all around. Exit at the second 11/0A (red arrow).


15. You can attach the earring hook as you wish or pick up different numbers of beads to make it longer or shorter, all up to you.

This is what I did. Pick up two 11/0A, 11/0B, two 11/0A, 11/0B, pearl 4mm, 11/0B, three 11/0A, earring hook and three 11/0A.


 16. Pass back through 11/0B (red arrow), pearl 4mm, 11/0B, two 11/0A and 11/0B (blue arrow).


17. Pick up two 11/0A. Pass through the second 11/0A (red arrow) and the next 11/0A (blue arrow).


18. To make a u-turn and reinforce your beads and earring hook, just follow the red path. Pass through the adjacent 11/0A (blue arrow). Pass through the next four 11/0A and the adjacent 11/0A (green arrow) and exit at the next 11/0A.

Now, you can pass through all beads in step 15 to reinforce your thread path.


19. This is optional but recommended if your hook has an open hole liked the one I used here. You should add 15/0 (red arrow) between the third and the fourth 11/0A, and pass through all 11/0A in this loop twice.

The earring is finished. You can pass through your beads to reinforce any loose spot.


Make another earring the same way.

Done!
