Progress of 3D Earrings

I love working with size 15 beads. They are as tiny as the point of a pencil but very versatile.
You have to use a thin needle to weave through these beads. It can be a challenge but I find it relaxing to concentrate that intensely.
I have been experimenting in the box shaped combination of peyote and herringbone stitch.
But why stop there? By joining the boxes I can make it 3D.

These will be earrings when I find just the right stone or gem to center inside the diamond shape.
