These hammered hoops are very stunning and elegant looking and the dangles are a great added bonus. I love that the video showed some of the other bead and hoop combinations to use for different looks. I can see these Dangle hoop beaded earrings being worn to a formal affair or a typical party.

Where do you get the large hammered rings?
