For 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!
Things You Will Need:
*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.
Cut the wire to about the site of your tool.
Slide the beads onto the wire in the order you want them.
Use your round-nosed pliers to add a loop to each end of the wire. Loop outward.
Work a hoop into the wire so you have something that looks like the image above.
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.
I 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?
I have done some other beaded earring tutorials in the past so, if you liked this one you might like those tutorials as well. Click the images for links to the tutorials.
