Pyrite Obsidian Hoop Earrings

"In this tutorial we are using some wonderful stainless steel hoop earring findings - they are so easy to use (just pull out the wire from the crimp attachment at the top), and slide on your beads! They even have a little hole if you would like to dangle a bead in the middle… which of course we did! In this design, we have used some lovely Pyrite beads and Golden Obsidian beads. We think they make for a striking combo! We’ve made a couple of different design – see the bottom of the tutorial for something slightly different. These earrings took next to no time to make – the hardest part is cutting that hard stainless steel wire (tips below!). Of course the possible combinations of colours and shapes are endless for these earrings – the only limitation is the curve of the hoop – so beads with a long (straight) hole will not go on."
