Stupid question but how do you keep it from unthreading when you go back through the same beads?

Not a stupid question at all! You can't see this in the photo but you don't actually go back through the same beads. What you'll do is only go back through the second bead from the end, so the string will sort of wrap around the first bead and it will be securely in place. Let me know if I can explain that better!

I love it. It is simple once you get the idea. And think how versatile this pattern would be. You can dress them up by using glitter beads or switch colors for the seasons. Green and red at Christmas, pink or purple for Easter, brown and orange for thanksgiving and so on. I am going to have to experiment a little with them.

video would also be nice for beginners. I love these crosses and they really were easy to make once I figured it out. Can you tell I'm a beginner...LOL! Thank you for the idea instructions.

This is a heart warming earrings for all holidays.
