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
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.
