Here’s a really easy jewelry tutorial for a great looking pair of beaded hoops. These are fun and so versatile that they will go with any outfit.  If you’re looking for an easy DIY jewelry project, this is the one for you.  I found these perfect beautifully hand crafted beads from Ethiopia on the  Happy Mango Beads site.  If you have never checked out this bead website,  you should.  They have a great selection of unique one of a kind beads that are hard to find.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Gauge Wire
  • Ethiopian Brass Beads ( From Happy Mango Beads or you can use any gold colored type of bead.)
  •  Wire Cutters
  • Needle Nose Pliers

Step 1:  Cut the wire to roughly eight inches.

Step 2:  Take the wire and bend it into a hoop.

Step 3:  Create a loop on one end and leave part of the wire hanging down.  On the other side, bend the wire.  After you have done this, on the side with the loop, fit the end of the wire down into the beads to disguise the end.

Step 4:  Push all of the beads together to make sure there is no gap in the wire as you are getting ready to tighten the hoop.  Wire wrap the long end of the wire at least three times and then trim it with the wire cutters.  When you trim the wire, make sure the end is to the back.  This will make for a much more finished look.  Attach the ear wires by opening them and attaching the hoops onto them.

      Thank you Lynnee. They are really easy to make. You’d actually be very surprised. Jewelry is always for sale of my site if any one is interested. But, I do have them on today and I think they are my new FAV.
