Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic wire-working skills are useful but not necessary as there are complete step-by-step instructions and close up detailed photos.

Pattern Description:

In this tutorial you'll learn how to make a basic wire hoop, which is a skill that will change your WORLD as a jewelry designer...just wait and see! Once you know these basics, you will be able to make any size you want - I help you figure out how to scale your materials up or down.

*Note: Optional items for this tutorial would be required if your preference is to hammer the hoops flat as shown in photos; it's not necessary but a matter of taste. Earrings made without this step are very similar, the wire will still be round and not flattened.

Tutorial is 6 pages including front and back cover pages and includes 12 detailed images along with written explanations. File size is 2.5 MB.

  • 9.5" 20 gauge round wire, half hard
