Pattern Details

These earrings are such a fun project to make, and once you know the technique you'll be making them in all different colors and sizes! *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. In this tutorial you'll first 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. Then we'll go through how to wrap your pretty beads onto your brand new hoops and before you know it you'll be reaping in the compliments and getting special requests from your friends! ********************************************************************* Tutorial is 8 pages including front and back cover pages and includes 19 detailed images along with written explanations. File size is 3.6MB. 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. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 1.5 inches in diameter

Recommended with this pattern

  • 9.5" 20 gauge round wire, half hard
