I surf the Anthropologie site monthly, they have some of the coolest looking jewelry, crafty stuff and home decor. Some of their handmade goodies however are quite pricy. Every now and then I find something like, like these earrings. That I know I can recreate without it costing a fortune.
The pretty color layers of the seed beads make them so beachy boho to me. I may need to make more colors too. They are super easy to make, all you need are earring hoop findings, jewelry wire and colorful seed beads. Let’s go make some trendy earrings!
DIY Beachy Bohemian Beaded Hoop Earrings
- Seed beads in various colors, 2mm+
- Gold earring hoop finding set, with hooks
- Gold jewelry wire, gold 20 gauge
- Jewelry making pliers
Cut a small 2 inch piece of wire and smooth it out straight. Using round nose pliers, curve the wire about 1/8 in down from one end.
Using bent nose pliers loop it around the hoop.
With curved nose pliers, tighten the loop and wrap it snug around the hoop. Add beads to the other end of the wire.
To finish the line of beads, bend end the wire around the hoop and pull tightly around the hoop. Trim the end and press under the edge of the hoop.
Repeat with more colors. Add your earring hook and that’s it! These earrings are super easy to make. Remember the first try bending wire is aways the hardest. The more you make the easier it will be know how to tighten the tension of the wire.
I also made a couple using larger beads.
