Large Hoop Sea Glass Earrings

Large Hoop Sea Glass Earrings

We love collecting sea glass and turning it into handmade jewellery!

These large hoop sea glass earrings involve drilling a hole for the jump ring and look stunning, making a perfect treat for yourself or a gift for a loved one. This kit contains a pack of 10 jump rings, meaning you can drill 10 pieces from your sea glass collection ready for other creations! This sea glass project requires a rotary tool and a few tools (listed below) as you will need to drill a hole in each piece of sea glass.

Please note that this kit does not contain sea glass or the tools needed to drill sea glass (see below our recommended tool list).

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Choose two pieces of clean sea glass that will dangle nicely below the hoop.

2. Next, drill 2 holes in your sea glass - giving enough room to attach a jump ring. Watch our video on how to drill sea glass below or read our advice page.

4. Once you have drilled your sea glass twist open a jump ring using snipe nose pliers and attach through the drilled hole. Close the jump ring.

5. Next, cut approximately 15cm of 0.8mm sterling silver wire.

6. Use round nose pliers to form a loop at the top of the wire.

7. Shape the hoop earring around a mandrel or a small round object.

8. Slide on the jump ring and sea glass onto the hoop.

9. Use round nose pliers to create a loop at the end of the wire, wrapping around the bottom of the other loop. Use snipe nose pliers to adjust the loops if necessary.

10. Use snipe nose pliers to open the loop of the earwire and attach the loop at the top - close using the pliers.

11. Gently squeeze the nylon coated pliers over the wire to smooth and shape it. This will also help to stiffen the wire.

12. Repeat these steps for the other earring hoop.

Your large hoop sea glass earrings are now complete.
