Hoop Earrings

... 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!

Materials

Tools

Step One

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)

Step Two

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.

Step Three

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.

Step Four

Use the chain nose pliers to open the jumpring gently to the side. Feed through the two loops on the wire hoop and close the jumpring.
Step Five
add the earwire to the jumpring and enjoy!
