... made from Memory Wire. We had so many
requests for big hoops that we could not find any big enough to satisfy
our customers' needs. When a customer asked us to make a pair from wire,
we found it challenging to keep the hoop shape with fine wire and they
looked awful...so, with a little experimentation, we found that Memory
wire worked great!
Place a rubber earring back on one end of the memory wire loop.
(this allows you to change the design easily before permanently
looping the wire)
Place the beads onto the wire as desired. We strung
17-4mm, 1-6mm, 2-4mm, 1-8mm and repeated the design up the other
side; make sure to leave 3/8in on each for the loop.
Using round nose pliers, make your first loop at open
end of memory wire. (You may need to trim the other end with the
memory wire cutter so that it is 3/8in.) Remove the rubber earring
back and make the other loop. Be sure to direct the loop to the
side of the wire, as you will need to feed the jumpring through
both loops to join.
Use the chain nose pliers to open the jumpring gently
to the side. Feed through the two loops on the wire hoop and close
