TierraCast Worlds Away Hoop Beaded with DiamonDuos
designed byTracy Gonzales for TierraCast
Approximate Size1 1/2 Inches
This technique makes a fun focal that you can showcase at the center of a necklace or earrings.
TierraCast's wire hoop pendants are versatile components that you can dress up in all kinds of ways. You can add charms, wear them as-is or bead around the hoop like Tracy did for this pendant. See exactly how she creates this pendant in our video tutorial. Once you've mastered the technique, you can come up with creative ways to add this pendant to your jewelry.
Tie and knot a comfortable length of thread around the TierraCast silver-plated brass 20mm small wire hoop. Then, add a TierraCast antique silver 3mm faceted spacer to the thread. Loop the thread around the hoop and back through the spacer. You can watch our video tutorial to learn how to make this pendant.
Add a DiamonDuo Mini 4x6mm pastel blue zircon Czech glass 2-hole bead to the thread and then loop around the hoop and back through the same stringing hole of the DiamonDuo. Repeat adding an alternating pattern of faceted spacers and DiamonDuo beads in this manner all the way around the hoop.
After adding your last faceted spacer, loop the thread around the hoop and back through the spacer so that it is to the outside of the spacer. Add a seed bead from the Artbeads Mermaid Treasures Designer Blend to the thread, and go through the top stringing hole of the next DiamonDuo over. Continue adding seed beads between the top holes of the DiamonDuo beads.
When you've added the last seed bead, go back through the corresponding spacer and loop around the hoop to reinforce. Secure and trim your thread.
