Beaded Hoop Earrings with Czech Beads by Kathy Zee

Pink and gold earrings using Czech beads and artistic wire

I just received these beautiful fire polished Czech beads and they called out “Make hoops!” so that’s what I did.

I used Artistic 20G wire.

I love the shimmer that are on these beads. Because they are glass beads I didn’t want to make them too heavy so only used 9 beads on each earring.

  • Kathy, the magic shimmer makes these beads particularly glamorous, and the lovely colors would go with many different outfits. I think these could be popular sellers!

    They are beautiful! I went to your website, very nice. I’m just starting out, just have a few things on consignment at shops. I was buying a lot of stuff from Michaels and JoAnns but everything is made in China. I want to be able to buy quality findings at reasonable prices. Where do buy your supplies?

  • Joanne Kane says:

    Your earrings are absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for mentioning the use of the 20 gage Artistic Wire.

    I get my supplies at quite a few places, some in the US and some in Canada. The beads that I used can be bought anywhere they sell fire polished Czech glass beads. Fire Mountain Gems has a big selection of fire polished Czech beads, and one of my favorite shops is Artbeads.com They have wonderful supplies, tutorials, and their video’s are fun to watch.They are based in Washington state. These beads on the earrings are 6 mm. I try to use high quality beads and Czech beads are wonderful. I also love Swarovski which i will be making some hoops with their crystals for the holiday season. Be careful with buying wire. I find that some artistic wire isn’t the real thing. I like the big spools and get those from Craftbistro on Ebay.

    Hi, Kathy…these are so pretty with their shimmering beads. So many possible colors with Czech glass. Nice design.
