    I really like this design. I would never have thought to use the noodle beads in this way.

    BIG hoops are all over SOCAL. These are a refreshing change from standard hoop designs & the tube beads add soliditity to the structure. Post earrings, again, a welcome change. Celebrating the size with a scale reference might help? Thank you for sharing. PS took a peek at your Etsy site. Very nice!

    Thanks N Dent and seashellsally! On my site I have a photo of model wearing my first version of these for size. I made some tube bracelets and was just thinking how I could make earrings with those and came up with these after some trial and error.
