Wire Wrapped Gem Stone Hoop Earring

45mm beading hoop- 2 pcs
3mm gem stone - 80 pcs
28 gauge wire- 6 feet

Wire cutter

Step 1. Cut 3 feet of the 28 gauge wire, and use it to string 40 pieces of the gem stone in the the pattern you want.
Tip: twist a small loop on one end of the wire so the beads don't come loose.

Step 2. Using the 28 gauge (NOT the side with the twisted loop), start wire wrapping the beading hoop (start on the side with the loop), wrap 10 times.

Step 3. Bring the 1st bead down, hold it into position, then wrap 3 times. Bring the 2nd bead down, hold the bead into the same position as the 1st bead, then wrap 3 times. Repeat the same process until you wrap all 40 pieces.

Step 4. Leave approx. 3/4 in. on the end, trim away the excess wire.
