Hearts in Knots Necklace Set

I picked up these puka shells on the beach in Hawaii in the 70's. Seeing that they needed reimagining, I sought out Arizona turquoise to contrast, accented with pewter hearts tied in knots. Other details: the clasp is sterling silver and hand crafted. the beads are also stering silver. The necklace is 20" long and the earrings are 3" long.

Hoop Earring Demo

This is a new way to make hoop earrings that require very little in supplies.  I set out the steps for you below.  Leave me a comment if you have any questions.  


First assemble your materials. You will need two pieces of 22 gauge half hard sterling silver wire and your choice of beads.

Using your needle nose pliers, create a wire wrapped loop that faces forward.

Then thread your beads onto the wire.

Bend each wire back about one inch.

Hammer the bent ends flat for a nice finish.

Pull the bent portion through the wire wrapped loop.

Thread the bent portion through the front of your ear lobe and connect in the back.

There you have it.

These earrings are available  here.

I am linking up to these parties!
