Little round peyote tubes

For awhile, I had been making simple beaded loops for toggle clasps, and then I started using flat round peyote stitch to make the loops, but now I've graduated to tubular peyote stitch clasps. It probably doesn't look much different from flat round peyote in the pictures, but it makes for a much sturdier and nicer looking clasp in person. Basically, you start out with a circle of size 15 seed beads and after working the first three rows, you work rows up alternating sides, slowly adding larger beads to increase the size of the circle, and then you join the two sides at the top.

After trying a toggle, I though these little circular tubes would look nice as earrings, so I made a couple of pairs.
