DIY Beaded Hoop Earrings

A couple of weeks ago I went to The Bead Farm, a local beading store, and I have to say that I am hooked.  I have always loved jewelry and have shared several jewelry tutorials with you before.  But it was so fun to go there and have them teach me!
Before I left I did a little shopping and brought some projects home to make.
These earrings were very simple and went together rather quickly.

Carefully open the hoop without squishing it.
Thread the beads onto the wire with the silver washer bead between the round beads.
Reattach the wire and crimp shut so it wont come undone.

Open the jump rings using 2 pairs of pliers.  Carefully pinch each side of the jump ring with one pair. Push right had forward and left hand backward.  By using this motion you will keep the jump ring in a circular shape without squishing it.
Add the beaded hoops and ear wires to the jump ring.  Close the jump ring again by using the 2 pairs of pliers and a rocking motion to bring the ends back together.
And that is all there is to it!
Aren’t they cute!
What do you wish you knew how to make out of beads?
