Dangle Hoops Earrings

Hey Guys,

So I have been playing around with my seed beads, love them! They're cheap but look so pretty and bright. Wanna make some?


Supplies:
Fish Hook Earring Findings
Jump Rings in asst sizes
Charms
Round Hoop Earring Findings
Seed Beads
Bead Mat
Jewellery Making Pliers


So these are pretty simple but a little time consuming open the hoop and start threading your beads.


It pop as many as you like on, I like to have a bit of the silver showing, no other reason than I like the look and then close it over. I use my pliers to shut the hoop to make sure it has a strong hold.

Using the larger jump ring add the charm to the middle. Mind my manky thumb I have been knee deep in paint and sanding and if, the hands aren't covered in paint they're covered in scrapes and bangs from moving this crap all around the house.


Add the fish hooks using the other jump ring and your done.


Then you repeat until you have all your favourite colours sorted.


DIY Delight or Disaster? Well I was only going to make one pair on a bit of a whim and ended up making about 6 pairs in different colours, I'm going to have to go with Delight!

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  13. I'm a big fan of dangle hoops! I love how they clangle around when you turn you head kinda fast... I try to do that a lot when I'm wearing dangle hoop earrings. These are so pretty, Mel. I think I'm liking the red and blue and pink.. can't decide ;P

  15. Lovely earring, I'm not at all surprised that you couldn't stop at just one colour! And your thumb just looks very real (like a normal person who does a lot of crafts) I never notice my lack of manicure till I'm at the editing photos stage then it's too late.

  17. I envy the patience it took to add those tiny beads to the tiny wire. If I tried this there would beads flying everywhere. I rank this as high on the delight scale. Thank you for linking to the Make It Monday party this week.
