Painted Geometric Wood Loop Earrings
Painted Geometric Wood Loop Earrings by Kristen Fagan
- Cut two 8″ pieces of .019 Diameter Soft Flex Wire. Clip a bead stopper to one end of your wire pieces. String 15 delica beads, 1 wood rectangle bead, 15 delica beads and a crimp tube. Remove the bead stopper and feed that wire end through the crimp tube, center the loop and crimp.
- String 6 delica beads on each side of the wire. Add a crimp tube to one wire and string the other wire end through the crimp tube to complete the circle and crimp. Trim excess wire. Add a jump ring and ear wire. Repeat on the second earring. Earring finished size is 2″ not including the ear wire.
- If you want you can add acrylic paint details to the wood beads with a brush or paint marker, leaving some of the wood exposed. Lastly, add a coat of Modge Podge to the wood beads to seal them. You could do this step first however, I like to add paint details after the jewelry is made. It’s a little backwards I suppose but, I enjoy letting the design speak to me and help me decide what pattern to add.
