Here is another alternative to the Runway earrings we discussed in the prior five pages. We call this variation of earrings "Jessica's Earrings" because they were inspired by Jessica Garrison who works for the Soft Flex company. Jessica wanted large hoop earrings, but she wasn't satisfied with just one hoop.
Like the Runway Earrings, these are large earrings. When worn, these earrings have a lot of motion as each circle of wire moves independently. If you want your earrings to be noticed, just the motion from these earrings alone will get them noticed. Combine that with the light that is reflected from the 8mm Swarovski Crystal beads in the center and you can be certain that people will notice these earrings.
These earrings are made with forty inches 16 gauge soft wire for the three circles of wire and thirty-six inches of 24 or 26 gauge wire for the wire that holds the circles closed and creates the loop to hang the next circle of wire. About 10 inches of 22 gauge wire were used to make the jump rings that connect one loop to another and for the modified figure 8 connector that connects the pair of ear wire findings to the largest loop. Two head pins and two 8mm crystal beads were used to add the beads in the center of the earrings. These earrings can be made on any WigJig tool, but require the 2", 1.5" and 1" Larger Round Super Pegs for that jig.
Currently large hoop earrings are in vogue. Here is an opportunity to make some stylish earrings similar to earrings shown in magazines and on television at a relatively inexpensive price. The instructions for making these earrings continue on the next page.
