So, after reading the hot topic for the "Tree of Life" Necklace (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188658.0), I went to the craft store to buy silver wire. I found these little silver hoops. I thought they were solid but it turns out they are endless hoop earrings, so I made matching earrings to go with the necklace.

Here you can see the open hoop of one of the earrings:


All of the process is the same as for the necklace, except I used two 5 inch pieces of 16 gauge wire instead of four 9 inch pieces. I used one of the four ends to go over the other three to make it more full, in the picture below it's number 4. I also used some bright green seed beads along with the jade chips.
