Square Earrings

I originally got the idea for these earrings when I was putting together a pair of earrings to match a pendant I'd made. The original earrings use just a single square bead, but I really liked the look of them.

I'd been struggling to find something to do with these square mother of pearl beads - they tend to spin around on the wire. This doesn't usually matter with round beads, but with square, rectangular, or circular but flat beads, it's a little annoying. However, wrapping the first pair of earrings worked really well to keep them in place, so I thought I'd try it with multiple beads and make an interesting pair of dangle earrings.
