Beaded Drop Hoops with Gray Pearls, Boho Style Dangle Earrings, Artisan made Hippie Earrings, Original Handmade Design, WillOaks Studio


Inspired by the hippie style of drop hoop earrings, my new beaded hoops feature hand forged frames wrapped in pale blue beads and a blue-gray freshwater pearl drop in the center. Oxidized sterling, including the handmade ear wires, provide contrast which highlights the ornate design, inspired somewhat by the old "paisley" designs of the hippie days.

My original design in oxidized sterling, designed to be very swingy. Hoops dangle almost 2 1/4" (57 mm) measured from the top of the ear wire. The widest part of the design is about 1" (24 mm). These earrings are one of a kind and ready to mail.

Oxidized sterling ear wires have a low profile and a longer length in the back to balance the hoops, and are mailed with small clear silicone clutches, to prevent loss. These are kind of hippie and bohemian, but could also be seen as very feminine and decorative. Please note, my Cannon digital camera has trouble with the color of pearls sometimes, and these pearls are more of a blue-gray color, though for some reason, come across with a brownish tone.

All sterling materials were used for earrings that will last a lifetime! Sent in my signature studio packaging, all ready to gift. All handmade by me in my studio. View other work in my "Metalwork" section here

These earrings are so very beautiful. They are constructed like an item from a high end department store. What an amazing talent on the part of this artist. Lucky me! The packaging is an uplifting and creative presentation--perfect for gift giving if that is what you have in mind. I proudly follow Will Oaks Studio. Thank you so much.
