Embellishing Twisted Wire Hoop Earrings
by Judy Freyer Thompson
Now that you have made the twisted wire earrings, think about adding some embellishment to a pair.

While bending the bronze wire, slide a bead or two on and continue to make the bend. You can change the feel of the earrings simply by choosing accent beads; go bold with a pop of color, black shiny beads, or demure with base metal beads.

Refer to the steps for the Twisted Wire Hoop Earrings with a few variations.

Instructions
Slide your choice of beads on the wires.

Hammer the end of the bronze wire into a paddle. This will also assure the beads don't slide off while making the bends.

Randomly bend the wire around the hoop, spacing out the beads.
Finish by twisting the ends of the wire several times around the hoop.
