Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an easy tutorial, it would be helpful to already know the basics of wirework, for example forming a loop, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

This lesson shows you how to make a hoop frame with a hinged earwire, which allows the earring to swing freely, whilst closing easily and securely.

The hoops are decorated using my Kiss Kross design (developed from my bracelet) with beads and wire. I have chosen faceted rondells, which creates a dressy look, but you could use any small beads of your choosing, rounds work very well.
