Trade Bead Hoop Earrings, Big Hoop Dangles with Bright Mixed Antique Trade Beads, Handmade Original Gift for Her, Made to Order


Big hoop earrings constructed with several coils of dark oxidized Sterling silver are covered with antique bright and colorful trade beads. My original design for fresh, detailed hoops are featured in different sizes and materials. This pair is 2 1/4" (58 mm) long measured from the top of the ear wire, and the free hanging coiled hoops are about 1 1/2" (37 mm) in diameter.

This version of my coiled and bound hoop design showcases a joyful random collection of colorful antique trade beads each between 1 mm and 2 mm in size. About a 34" strand of original, 100 year old beads is used on the oxidized coils--5 loops on each earring. They dangle freely from an oxidized hand formed fish hook style earring (or Leverback - select your preference) and are surprisingly lightweight. The design is slightly organic and rustic and completely original. Think summer fun, circuses, carnivals and county fairs....also consider that being such a wonderful mix of color, they will probably work with almost any outfit.

These earrings are made to order and there is some variety in the random bead collection for each pair of earrings but all made from this hank of old trade beads will have the joyful bright colors illustrated here.

WillOaks Studio earrings are shipped in my signature cotton filled boxes, all ready to give or to keep! And there are many fun and original earring design in my studio which can be viewed here and here
