TUTORIAL: HALF-HOOP EARRINGS



So I have no idea what to call these earrings, so I came up with half-hoops. I like the simplicity and the imbalance of them, I tend to wear my hair pushed to one side, and only made one of each. The other side I wear a simple stud.


These earrings are also ridiculously easy to make, and all you need is wire, a charm/bead, earring backs.




MATERIALS NEEDED:
  • wire (I'm using 24gauge)
  • charms/beads
  • earring backs
  • pliers


step one




You're going to snip your wire. I cut a little less than a full loop.






Like this!


step two




First, I just picked and lined out my charms/beads.


I picked lighter (in weight) ones.





Take a loop, and slip your bead on.


step three






Take your pliers, and bend one side up so the bead doesn't fall off.

VARIATIONS: You can always close it off with a loop, press on the wire then bend it to make sure it doesn't fall off, etc.









step four






Slide a backing on.


























Now you're done!










The backing keeps the earring level and your beads in place.








Thanks for reading!
