Making Post Hoop

I had a request for my RocknRoll Hoops in a post style! I have sold three pairs of the swinging RocknRoll Hoops and I’m happy to make then in a little different way. So, Thanks Dawn for the request!

The pics are of the steps to make the hoop so just follow along. These are easy and fun and I don’t know a woman who doesn’t like a simple pair of hoops.

Make sure when you are heating them up you don’t need to heat the post. It is too small to tolerate much heat. Just make sure you have nice flush ends and the post is touching the end of the heavier wire.

I purchase posts from Rio Grande and really like them because they are stamped .925 which is really tiny but visible.

Hoop 14 Gauge

Wire Wrap 18 Gauge

I will take a pic when they are polished and done!
