Hoops Boot Camp

It's time for another Boot Camp project hosted by Love My Art Jewelry. The focus this time around is metal hoops.  I decided to try soldering a few 16g copper wire hoop rings which I have not done in a while. This first pair of earrings include some glass lampwork beads by Moderntrails.


The second pair of earrings I completed are similar in style to the first with more glass lampwork beads by Jewelweaver. Just love that green glass!



Be sure to stop by Love My Art Jewelry for some great tips on making hoops and more great designs.

  1. Lisa~These are gorgeous! I love the color contrast with the first pair and the shape and texture of the beads in the second pair. And how the beads are framed...swinging, dangling, wearable art :-)

  9. Lisa,
    Both pair of earrings are beautiful. I really like the simplicity of your design and the way the glass beads swing freely in the middle of the large hoop. Although the design is basically the same the second pair is my favorite, because of the color green.

  10. Lisa these are awesome! I love the 'swing' to them, which they no doubt have when you wear them :)
