These earrings are made by first creating a bezel using the peyote stitch to hold a 12mm rivoli. Next you'll use right-angle weave to add bicone crystals, fire-polished beads (or any size 3mm bead) and seed beads around this peyote rivoli base. You can also make a matching medallion from the rivoli motif. The pattern is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions. Experience helpful but not necessary.
