What Beads Are Used?
There are a few different types of beads used to make beaded hoop earrings. Most of them use tiny beads for jewelry making, like seed beads. If you have never heard of seed beads, these are very small beads that are usually made of glass. These little beads can be used in many different ways, and one of the best uses is to make pretty beaded hoop earrings.
These little beads, come in a variety of bead color options. If you are looking to make a generic pair of earrings that can be worn for any occasion, then using white seed beads is always a great option.
Really though, the little seed beads come in a few different size options, and so many different colors, it might be hard to choose the color combinations you want to use, but there are so many pretty colorful seed beads.
You can find the seed beads sold by the color, or in a variety package at your local craft store. These little beads can be combined with larger beads or used by themselves. There are also a variety of ways you can incorporate these seed beads into hoop earrings.
One special way that seed beads in particular can be used is to use what is called a brick stitch hoop earring pattern to add the seed beads to the earring hoops. Another great option is to simply string your desired colors of beads onto wires to create your own easy hoop design. No matter how you choose to make your beaded hoop earrings, you can make these patterns for special occasions, for gifts to give away, or even to sell at craft shows.
Other Types of Beads
In addition to the pretty little seed beads, you might enjoy incorporating a few other bead options into your beaded hoop earrings. Some other great options include using metal bead earring, crystal beads, bugle beads, and delica beads. These are all larger beads that you could use alone or combine with seed beads to give a nice accent to your beautiful earrings.
