How to Make Beachy Boho Beaded Hoop Earrings
Make these Beachy Boho Beaded Hoop Earrings in this easy step-by-step tutorial. These beaded drop hoop earrings are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. For more fun jewelry ideas see my Fashion + Jewelry page.
I am seeing these earrings at Target and by Park Lane these days in the exact same color I made here years ago, (yes this tutorial is old but updated). I guess I should be flattered.
Some of their handmade goodies, however, are quite pricey. Every now and then I find something like these DIY Bead earrings. That I know I can recreate without it costing a fortune.
The pretty color layers of the seed beads make these beaded hoop earrings look so beachy boho to me. Follow along as I show you how to make these colorful layered beauties.
They are super easy to make, all you need are earring hoop findings, jewelry wire, and colorful seed beads. I love these so much I may need to make more colors too. Let’s go make some trendy earrings!
How to Make Beaded Hoop Earrings
- Seed Beads in Various Volors, 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 the end of 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 always the hardest. The more you make the easier it will be to know how to tighten the tension of the wire.
I also made a couple using larger beads. I hope you liked my tutorial! Now go make something great!

Hi! Love the earrings and was just wondering where you got the beads from – in particular the brown wood coloured ones? Thinking of making these as an isolation project!
They are wood seed beads. You can find similar ones on Amazon by clicking the link in this comment
Very Cool post, I definitely love Anthropologie, but it is insanely expensive on their jewelry. This is certainly an easy fix–and all the pieces and tools are less than a cost of one of their pairs of earrings. Grins and thanks, Sandi
Kim, these earrings are so pretty! I have loads of beads from my beading stage of crafting and this would be a great way to use them up. Where did you get the tear drop frame earring?
I’ve bought some tear drops and circle earring frames from Walmart, although they were silver colored.
Those should work fine. Last time I looked Michaels has the gold ones.
