Every once in a while, I have a happy accident when I'm playing around with a new technique. These earrings are a perfect example of that. While trying to modify the Heavy Metal Oval Earrings to make them a bit more three-dimensional, I came up with a highly structured hoop shape. I kept going with it and these really cool earrings were born.
Each earring is handwoven using Czech glass beads in silver, matte gold, and shiny gunmetal. They measure about 3/4 inch in width, 1 inch in depth, and about 2 inches in length. The tension from the beadweaving keeps the shape very rigid, so these earrings really give the illusion you are wearing metal hoops.
