How to make bead hoop earrings – Tutorial:
- Wire Cutter
- Flat Nose Pliers
- Round Nose Pliers
Slide a gumball bead on a headpin.
Cut off the headpin such that with the remaining wire you will comfortably be able to make a loop.
Using round nose pliers, make a loop at the top by bending the headpin. You can see this explained in detail here.
Make 4 such pieces using green gumball beads and head pins – for one earring.
Now take a tear drop acrylic crystal and insert a jump ring in it.
Use flat nose pliers to open and close the jump rings.
Now comes the easier part…. slide a metal spacer bead in the silver hoop.
Slide the green bead piece.
Similarly keep sliding the pieces till you have the desired hoop design.
Repeat the steps above for the other earring and its done…!
