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.
- wire (I'm using 24gauge)
- earring backs
You're going to snip your wire. I cut a little less than a full loop.
First, I just picked and lined out my charms/beads.
I picked lighter (in weight) ones.
Take a loop, and slip your bead on.
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.
Slide a backing on.
Now you're done!
The backing keeps the earring level and your beads in place.
Thanks for reading!
