Supplies:

Industrial Double Hoop Earring Tutorial by Rena Klingenberg

  • 2 pieces of 16 gauge round soft wire, each 12 cm long (I used nickel, but because many people are allergic to nickel you may want to use aluminum, silver, steel, or other metal).
  • 2 pieces of 16 gauge round soft wire, each 8 cm long (I used copper).
  • 2 jump rings.
  • 2 earwires.
  • Ring mandrel (or 2 cylindrical objects – one with a circumference of about 7 cm, and the other about 5 cm).
  • Wire cutter (make sure it’s sturdy enough for 16 gauge wire).
  • Round nose pliers.
  • Flat nose pliers.

How to Make
Industrial Double Hoop Earrings:

Cut your wires to the specified length, and use a cup bur or jewelry file to smooth and round all wire ends.

Use round nose pliers to make a loop at each end of both pieces of your longer wires:

Use round nose pliers to make a loop at each end of both pieces of your shorter wires:

Place the midpoint of one of your longer wires on your 7 cm mandrel (or ring mandrel size 12):

Place each shorter wire inside one of your longer wires, with the loops lined up like this:

Then string all 4 metal loops onto one of the jump rings:

Do the same with the other earring.

Attach an earwire to the top of each jump ring:

  16. Rena, thanks so much for sharing. I notice you use copper wire for ear wires. Do you use any special sealer on the wires? Do they not cause problems in piercings? I have always used silver for ear wires, but would really like to use copper, as the wires could become a continuation of design. By the way, Hi from Tasmania.

  17. Thank you for this great tutorial. Easy and straight forward….and oh so cute!

  20. Hi Edna – have you searched for “leather grommet tape” on Etsy.com as well as on google.com?
    Other searches to try are “leather eyelet tape” and “leather grommet trim”.
    Also check with your local fabric stores.
    Have fun making your Grommet Wrap Charm Bracelet!

  21. Love the look of different metals.
