DIY Beaded Hoop Wire-Wrapped Earrings

DIY Beaded Hoop EarringsFor today’s Make Something Mondays I put together a tutorial for beaded hoop wire-wrapped earrings. These are fairly easy to make and they don’t take more than half an hour all together. The wire and beading is affordable, so they also make fun gifts!

DIY Beaded Hoop Earrings materialsThings You Will Need:
Wire*
Beads
Clip pliers
Jump rings
Earring hooks
flat-nosed pliers
Round-nosed pliers

*I am not entirely sure what size wire I used for these earrings. I know it was a larger gauge though. As long as you get a sturdy wire, this will work fine.

DIY Beaded Hoop Earrings Step 1Step 1:
Cut the wire to about the site of your tool.

Use a jump ring to fasten the two loops at the top of your soon-to-be earring together.

Attach another jump ring to the jump ring you just fastened. Then, link the last jump ring with an earring hook to finish it off.

DIY Wire Hoop EarringsI decided to make a slightly smaller set of earrings as well. Those are the ones on the very end that you can hardly see (for good reason). Those didn’t turn out so well. Oh well, practice, practice, practice!

Happy crafting… or beading?
