CALYPSO HOOPS


About this design:

These were my favorite, go-to silver hoops. They got really tarnished from mixing with other metal earrings, try as I could, I wasn't able to remove it. So the next best thing was to recycle them into these!

Components:

Silvertone hoop earrings, silver-plated 24 gauge wire, 11/0 lime, orange. yellow and cobalt seedbeads.
