Ingredients:
36 magatama 4 opaque mix seed beads
2 gold plated 2” hoop earrings
72” of gold plated 24 gauge wire

Tools:
Chain nose pliers
Round nose pliers
Cutters
Ruler

1: Use 36” of wire to tightly wrap 1 hoop for 1”, beginning at the hole side as shown.

2: Grasp the hoop with round nose pliers and bend the wire over the pliers, creating a loop as shown.

3: Use the wire to string one bead and wrap the wire three times around the hoop as shown. Repeat 17 more times. Wrap the wire around the hoop for 1” as in step 1 and trim.

4: Use chain nose pliers to make a 90 degree bend in the hoop about 1/8” from the end as shown.

5: Repeat steps 1-4 to make the second earring.

 Enjoy your new earrings! The technique to make these is quite versatile. You can easily change up the look and feel of your earrings by switching out the beads used and the size of the hoop or earring findings. Make a bunch of these and have some fun this Summer!

Happy Creating,
Erin
