Christmas Hoop Earrings

PROJECT E6101
Designer: Haley Brittain
Skill Level: Beginner
These earrings are very fun and festive, featuring three seasonally bright colored beads on three hoops.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Start by cutting 3 lengths of wire about 1 foot each. Gather the ends of all three wires you just cut into one crimp bead and crimp them together. Feed the wire into one of your knot covers starting with the long ends of wire, so that your crimp bead is resting where the knot cover can close over it. Go ahead and close your knot cover and trim any wire that is sticking out.
  2. On your first wire, place beads on in this order: 13 red, 1 white, 2 red, 2 white, 1 red, 13 white, 1 green, 2 white, 2 green, 1 white, 13 green.
  3. On your second wire, place beads on in this order: 17 red, 1 white, 2 red, 2 white, 1 red, 17 white, 1 green, 2 white, 2 green, 1 white, 17 green.
  4. On your third and last wire, place beads on in this order: 21 red, 1 white, 2 red, 2 white, 1 red, 21 white, 1 green, 2 white, 2 green, 1 white, 21 green.
  5. When you are done with all of your beads, put all three wires through a knot cover, then a crimp bead. Arrange your wires to whatever order and however tight you prefer for them to look and then crimp your crimp bead and close the knot cover. Trim extra wire when completed.
  6. Open up a jump ring and put on the loops from both of the knot covers and the earring wire. Close the jump ring.
