I'm so glad to see that hoop earrings are showing up on everyone's 2014 style lists, because I've been making lots of them in Deryn Mentock's Boho Bliss eCourse. Here are a few of my favorites.

Blue London topaz, firepolish and pearls
The palest green amethyst faceted rounds with blue and green kyanite rondelles
Three-sided ovals with crystals
Peridot rondelles and 6/0 three-cut seed beads

Deryn's course has me tackling lots of new techniques! Torch work no longer terrifies me, and a Dremel can be found center stage on my bead table these days. So much fun and much still to learn! But the combustibles and the power tools are going to be tucked away for the next few weeks while I return to needle and Fireline. I have a few challenge pieces to prepare.

If you'd like to join in the fun, Boho Bliss is open for registration until November 3rd.


  1. These are beautiful, Karin~all of them! But those first two pair are so interesting with how the stones hang. Just gorgeous! Cannot wait to see more of these once the challenges are done ;-)

  2. Oh Wow Karin, I love each and every pair of these earrings they are beautiful and your work is so neat. I am learning to work with metal too. How did you get your hammered ends so neat and round looking?

  3. Oh these are fantastic! I LOVE the look and feel to your boho earrings especially those dangling ones - fantastic!

  4. Very nice! I like the dangly ones the best!

  5. What lovely hoops, I have been making hoop earrings too!
