Some years ago, one beader at a beading party designed this enormous hoop earrings which was about 5-6 inches long (and kind of droopy because it was sterling silver wire)!  At the time, I thought it was the largest earrings I had ever seen. But these Solomon Chase  XXL earrings are like wearing hula hoops!

Did you notice she tucks them safely under her arms?  And manages to go about her day! This is street fashion for you.

Big jewelry is a current trend. If you like to make big hoop earrings - although not as large as those pictured above - and you want them to stay round, use memory wire! You can get them in bracelet or even necklace sizes! If you need a tutorial, check out the memory wire hoop earrings tutorial by Bead Studio. Remember to use a memory wire cutter or a hardware store one NOT your flush cutters!

Planning and writing this post inspired me to come up with my Diva Double Hoop earrings for my Etsy store. They are non-tarnish and made with as much as lightweight materials as possible.
