Designer Cynthia Deis
Create dangling hoop earrings to show off some sparkly rhinestone beads and you'll have a new favorite pair of earrings. You can customize this design with any beads but be careful about the weight of your finished earrings.
1. Feed beads onto one gold plated hoop finding in the order shown.
2. Using your chain nose pliers bend the end of the hoop upward at a 90 degree angle approximately 1/2 inch from the end. Feed the bent end through the small hole on the other end of the ear finding. Using your round nose pliers loop the wire. Attach a simple ear loop to the earring using your chain nose pliers. Repeat to create the second earring.
Want bigger hoop earrings? Skip the pre-made hoop findings and use 18 gauge wire to make a larger hoop. Wire wrap the ends to finish your design.
