Supplies

Directions

Here is a step by step guide on how to make hoop earrings.

Step 1:

Step-One

Gather your supplies together.

Step 2:

Step-Two

Unwrap wire from spool and wrap one time around the king size sharpie pen to create the circular shape.

Step 3:

Step-Three

Leave a little excess wire and trim with the flush cutters.

Step 4:

Step-Four

Take the flat nose pliers to one end of the wire and bend it upwards at a 90 degree angle.

Step 5:

Step-Five

Use the round nose pliers for the other end of the wire and create a loop.

Step 6:

Step-Six

Bend the wire backwards enough to where the loop will align with the tip of the other end.

Step 7:

Step-Seven

Take the flat nose to the loop end of the wire and pull it backwards enough, ensuring that it is center to the tip.

Step 8:

Step-Eight

Align the bent tip through the loop to check that the wire will secure and maintain its circular shape without strain.

Step 9:

Step-Nine

Trim the bent tip down as needed so that it barely protrudes past the loop when closed.

Step 10:

Step-Ten

File the bent tip to a cone shape. This is the area that will be inserted into your ear hole.

Tips

  • Hammer the hoops to create a more hardened shape and add texture to your piece.
  • Use other circular shapes besides a king size sharpie pen to create more variations of this design.
