Hoops at Last ! Day 5 Make & Show Challenge

Well they nearly beat me but here they are at last-

Chunky long hoops - £20

They started off as 2mm sterling silver square wire which I hammered until it was about 3mm wide then textured, cut and sanded the corners.

I then soldered a silver post on the back of each sliver

And shaped the wire into a long hoop

The back is shorter than the front so it just slips behind your ear lobe

All twinkly from the front and twinkly and chunky from the side
