Add loop fringe to each bottom bead to make beard:

12 beads in 2nd loop
16 beads in 3rd loop
20 beads in 4th through 6th loops
16 beads in 7th loop

Thanks for this pattern, I made myself a pair of these earrings with Delicas, they are so cute! I just taught my fiance's niece how to do brick stitch using this pattern with seed beads, she made one earring and I made the other, so now we have matching earrings for Xmas!
