Hey hey hey! I am re-posting the tutorial for the triple hoop earrings that i made of glass beads and oval capiz shells (see original image below).

TRIPLE HOOP EARRINGS TUTORIAL
Step 1: Cut three wires of the same length. make a loop on the end of the first layer of wire and insert seed beads.

Step 2: insert looped end of the second layer of wire followed by seed beads and centerpiece in the middle of the first layer of wire. Repeat in the next layers.

Step 3: insert beads in the 3rd layer of wire then loop the end. insert this end in the 2nd layer of wire

Step 4: Continue inserting seed beads in the 2nd layer, loop the end of the wire and insert this on the 1st layer.

Step 5: insert last batch of seed beads in the 1st layer, loop the end, connect the two looped ends with a jumpring and insert centerpiece. voila, you know have the first of your pair of three-layered hoop earrings.

Thanks for the tut!! Wink

I think I'll try and do a pair, but maybe without 1 hoop... That's a little too much for what I'm used to.. ehehehhe   Tongue
But still I think they look very nice on you! (or whomever has the earring on the pic... Wink )

You could use 2" eyepins for this.. but then the rings would be very small..

I make these with twisted sterling wire as the hoop, and all kinds of neat beads and pearls inside.  I also, when I'm feeling like it, make them with sterling wire wrapped around the hoop..those sell for a lot of money because of the labor.

Because I don't use seed beads, I never even considered that as an option...what a great look!!!

I think there are similar earrings in this month's step by step wire jewelry, created by a friend of mine.
