Scalloped Hoop Earrings DIY TUTORIAL

The scalloped edge has been popping up everywhere in clothing and accessories. I love the feminine, flirty and sweet feeling that this detail adds to anything. It's easy to incorporate the trend with a pair of easy beaded hoops!

54 size 8 seed beads
1 pair of silver-plated 25mm beading hoops
36" of gold-plated 24 gauge wire

Chain nose pliers
Wire cutters

1: Use 18" of 24 gauge wire to tightly wrap 1 hoop three times, beginning at the hole side.

2: Bring the wire to the top of the hoop and string 3 seed beads. Hold the beads at the top of the hoop and wrap the wire three times around the hoop as shown. Repeat 8 times.

3: Using chain nose pliers, make a 90 degree bend in the hoop about 1/8" from the end.

4: Repeat steps 1-3 to make the second earring.

Enjoy your new, pretty earrings!
