I have a question about the radish bead earrings. I bought seed beads, but I think there waaaayyy too tiny.They don't fit on my string! Is there a certin size I should get? For the beads? Should I use wire instead of string?

There's a tut on the board for them that has all the details you are looking for:

Perhaps that will help?

Well, I think wire would be the easiest way to make the earrings. I think string of any kind would be too flimsy.
Do you want the earrings in the style of the movies or in the books? For in Deathly Hallows, we find that they aren't radishes at all, but Dirigible Plums, and if you're making them in the book style, then I think the best thing to do would be to take orange polymer clay and making small, radish-shaped earrings.
In the movie, though, they're clearly radishes, so the other board for the earrings would probably be your best bet.
And if you're worried that polymer clay will be too heavy, then don't worry, because if you make it small enough, it won't hurt too much. (And trust me, this is coming from a girl who used to only wear lightweight studs...)
