Mata Bia earrings

Hey I finally got some time to work on something new. My mom gave me these shells (we call them mata bia, Indonesian for eye shell), years ago to make earrings out of and I've been wracking my brain on how to put them together. I thought about wire-wrapping, but I finally just went looking for a tutorial on how to make a beaded bezel. You can find the tutorial here.

Here are the finished earrings. The green beads are malachite.
