We went with garnets, for a subtle January birthstone pair of earrings, and this design would be easy to make with any other birthstone, or simply use your favorite faceted beads for a non-birthstone option.

Pick a starting position, and anchor 26-gauge wire on hoop with 4-5 tight lashes.
String first row of beads, and wrap wire around hoop at desired point, add second row of beads, and wrap on the same side as the anchor.
Add third row and anchor the final end, then clip off excess wire.
Add ear wire.
Mirror pattern for other earring.
