Hoop earrings don't have to be round. Check out this lovely heart hoop earrings tutorial by Wendy of Door44Studios

The wire hearts are worn on the smaller section of the asymmetrical element with the hook portion at the point. Neat!

She has tips on how to create identical hearts. She uses a ring mandrel to properly size the curved portions of the heart. 

Wendy's tutorial is for the basic heart but she goes over some lovely inspirational variation ideas at the end so you can customize the earrings as you wish.

Wendy is a great wire artisan and instructor. Check out her Etsy for more tutorials.
