These 3 fabulous beaded hoop earrings are based on metal hoop foundations.  First up is this beaded hoop earrings tutorial (no longer available) by Portuguese beader, O Espírito das Artes. It is a good example of using bugle beads which aren't used that much especially for earrings. I love how she used beads to add to the inside these pre-made hoops.

The design is not hard to accomplish but it is important to use the size of beads stated in the tutorial. You'll also have to get that kind of frame if you are not up to adapting the design for other types of hoops.

Kelly from Off  The Beaded Path has a different type of beaded hoop earrings tutorial.  The hoops themselves can be purchased or hand made from wire.  The beads are stitched on the outside.  The added beaded focals makes these earrings pop!

Renee Bedard takes a different approach with her hoop earrings (video is no longer available). Beads are peyote stitched all around the metal hoop earrings. A little tricky to do, methinks especially at the start. But what a pretty pair!
