This video shows you how to reinvent the beading hoop into a fancy beaded earrings! .
To make these earrings you are going to need the following:
Beading Hoops aren’t just for threading beads into hoops – they can easily be turned into fancy earring hooks, with or without beads! Here I thread 9 little Apatite beads onto each of the 30mm hoops. Going from the loop at the base, I hold both hoops level and bend the hoops at the same spot after the beads. ( Tip – I hold both at the same time to make sure they become an identical pair. If you want to make multiples of the same length, you can make a template and use a permanent marker to mark where the bend should be. )
I also bend the tip of the earring hook to add a flair, but this is not necessary if you don’t wish. I then pull on the hook to elongate and alter the look slightly. Once you have the desired look, you can set the shape by hammering it – this tempers the silver, hardening it.
