I bought these because they inspired different designs in my head. After many different attempts at the "right" style for me I finally decided to string random seed beads onto a thin gauge wire and then twist the wire around the hoop itself. I have had so many compliments on these earrings it is unreal. They are so fun and colorful that they match everything I wear, I find myself wearing these more than any other earring. Everyone loves them!

Big, Bold, Easy
String beads on the large loop - as far as you want. Add a dangle from the center loop or clip off the center loop. Add ear wire. Great bold earrings, quickly. Make several pair with totally different looks! Love these add-a-bead hoops!

Add-A-Bead Hoop Earrings
I love Add-a-Bead Hoop Earrings. At first, I couldn’t figure out how to close the hoop. I like the middle loop to hang dangles from, so I tried crimping the end to close the hoop, but I didn't like the way it looked.
What works best for me is, hold the wire using long nose pliers, put a dab of hypo cement on the” tip” of the wire, and push the wire into the hole. Set aside until the glue has set. I've had a lot of success with this method and have sold a lot of these style earrings!

In spite of reading the size online, I was surprised to see how large these hoops are! The hoops that I received were well made and easy to use. I like that there is a pre-fashioned loop at the top to attach a dangly focal piece. I would suggest that if you are wishing to keep the original shape, to work carefully, as they bend out of shape fairly easily. In spite of the large size (my error!) and delicate nature, I do like these hoops.

you can cut the loop off if you dont want a dangle in the middle. and i crimp the top with pliers so it wont come off. but i use my household pliers now after breaking 2 pairs of chain nose pliers doing this! it takes a lot to of strength to crimp it closed but i dont want them coming open. i have made over 30 pairs of these.

These are great!
I love these hoops. I've made multiple pairs of earrings with these - on some, I've hung a Swarovski flat briolette from the center loop, and on others, I've cut off the loop and just strung beads on the hoop. I love that for gifts I can pinch the closure at the top, ensuring that the hoop won't open, but on my own, I can create new earrings each time by swapping out the beads and not pinching the top.

Love these earrings - they allow me to make some very unique finished earrings. I hung a Swarvosky teardrop from the center ring, then added 4mm bicones to the loop - and they were absolutely beautiful! Would definitely order again & recommend to others.

Large but nice-looking earring hoop
This earring hoop is too big for a lot of my customers, but the ones who love them REALLY love them. I like to hang enough beads in the middle to fill the space to give balance. I like the variety of beads one can hang in the middle: gemstones, crystals, etc. I've made several pairs for myself!

The first pair of earrings that I made, I had a little difficulty with noticing which side pulled out. With time and patience, I was able to use these without any problem. They are sturdy for even novice beaders. Since large earrings are the rave now, these are a wonderful, unique change. Also with the size, may different styles of beads may be used.

I thought these earrings were a great idea. You can add as many beads as you want to the hoop. You can also add beads to the ring in the middle. I added 7 teardrop beads to each earring on the bottom, then I added 1 oval and 1 round bead in the middle. I had to glue the wire that pulls out on the top next to the loop since it kept popping out. Great idea for multiple earring styles.

Best idea ever!
These are so cute - so simple and yet what a great idea! Have not seen these anywhere! You can put one bead in the middle, or fill up the hoop. You can dangle a bead from that little loop on top, or you can just snip it off! Love it!

Questions and Answers
Q:What is the weight of material? Can you easily bend them?
A: All of our filigree pieces can be bent. This piece is not as easily manipulated as others, so you will want to use chain nose pliers to help shape it.
