Exactly as the title says Wink I got a bag of beach glass from someone for my fish tanks. I decided that the glass was too pretty to stick into the tanks, so wanted to try my hand at wire wrapping. I have very thin brass coated wire, which is lovely. I wrapped the glass, making a loop at the top. Added 20 light blue seed beeds to the hoop, added the french hook, and voila! Any comments are welcome, and thanks for looking!





ETA: This set I made for my sister Wink

I dont usually like hoop earrings but I quite liek yours. I havnt quite worked out why, but i think it might be because the beads dont go all the way round the hoop. Anyway, what i wanted to say was that your earrings are very nice.

Thank you viridis Smiley I don't usually like hoops either, but these seem to work. Plus, they are nice and light, not too heavy on the ears. Thanks again!

wow!
what a great idea, i have loads of beach glass (as i live in hawaii, and tend to find it when i'm cleaning up beaches or beach combing). i've been saving it for some special project, but never know what.
i thought of getting some of those "bead cage" type things, but wire may be cheaper, especially since i already have some.
thanks for the inspiration!
your earrings look great.
