This is a beaded bead made using right angle weave with 4mm jet black crystals. I added small clear seed beads around the top and bottom of the bead, and then added a tear drop crystal bead to the bottom using 20 guage filled sterling silver wire.  This is my first post so I hope I have done it correctly.

This is so beautiful! I would make two and wear them as earrings. And then make more in different colours.

It's rather large for an earring, so I think I am just going to use it as a pendant, and hang it from a simple chain.  And I think I will make more, lol.

It's a right angle weave pattern I saw  in several places on Youtube, but with the addition of sead beads around the edge.  I don't know how to link to that particular video, but if you just put "beaded bead" in the search engine on Youtube, you should find several videos that show you how to do this. The one I used was by uamouse.  Hope this helps.  By the way, if you are at all familiar with right angle weave, you should have no problem making these beads.  I'm a begginer and I was able to follow the instructions, so anyone should be able to do it, lol.
