This design was just so cool to me. I knew I had to do a hoop earring to go with the hoop skirt. These hoops are hammered sterling silver. I cut and frayed my own leather lace and then wax dipped the ends. Interspersed throughout the earrings is sterling silver chain and keishi pearls. These earrings are sterling silver with 20 gauge earwires. Each earring is 5” at the longest point. These are definitely shoulder dusters! Each earring weighs 5.2 grams.
