This design uses two contrasting weaves, one for the bail or leg and the other (the rainbow weave) is used to form the foot, covering half of the bead.

This design also lends itself to earrings, by making a matching pair and adding earwires and jump rings, you have yourself an unusual and stylish set of jewellery.
