3D Christmas Tree Earrings – barely in time for Christmas…

Actually, it's not quite ready yet. It's freeform and unconventional, so I've been uncertain how to write it up. But a few people have said that they're waiting for the pattern, so I will just put this out as is. I'd welcome any feedback – then I can continue to improve my description of this pattern. So, here it is! :-)
[Update March 2017: I have now improved the pattern and changed the links to go to the updated version.]

    1. It would be a challenge for me to do a video! Also, these trees are really so small, all you might see is my fingers! I will think about diagrams or progress pictures. But let me know more after you have tried the pattern.

  4. A freeform pattern must be tricky to convey. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yeah, it's tricky. In my hands at least, it never comes out quite the same way each time.

  5. I love the look of those Grace. Is there a source for the beads you used for tree trunks? I will probably be making these after the new year. I have the pattern downloaded now. Thanks for doing these!

    1. Well, I bought these coral beads in Chinatown in Singapore, where there are many bead shops! I just browsed around and bought whatever looked promising, and my sister picked these from the range I offered her. But you could try completely different beads. For my prototype I used a round bead, and it doesn't look too bad! And now I have made a pair for myself with square base beads. Or you could try Muskaan's tatted tree trunk...
