Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Gather your materials. Cut about 6" of wire.
Step 2:
Onto the wire string about 4" of your first color of seed beads, in this case I started with white.

Tip: Bend the end of your wire slightly so the beads don't fall off as you string them.
Step 3:
Open up your hoop. Wrap one end of your wire around the hoop 2 or 3 times to secure.
Step 4:
Start wrapping your wire around the hoop. Keep tension loose enough so you aren't cracking the beads, but tight enough so there isn't a lot of gaps between the beads. Leave space on the hoop between wrapped loops.

As you wrap around, pass the working wire through the open part of the hoop to make it easier to wrap.

Once you've reached the end, wrap the bare wire around the hoop 2 0r 3 times to secure. Snip any excess wire.
Step 5:
Cut another 6" of wire, this time stringing on about 4" of your second seed bead color. Wrap one end of the wire around the hoop a couple times to secure. I wrapped above the existing wraps from my first color.
Step 6:
Start wrapping the second color.

Be sure you are wrapping in the same direction as the first color you wrapped and filling in the open spaces on the hoop. This way the two colors will lay nicely next to each other, not on top of one another.
Step 7:
Finish by securing the bare end of the wire to your hoop. Again, I wrapped above the existing wraps from my first color. Snip any extra wire.
  Step 8:
Repeat for a second earring and you're done!
