10 Ideas For Memory Wire Beaded Earrings

While these beaded earrings are easy to make, the outcome is spectacular designs by using a range of basic wire wrap techniques and off-loom band weaving stitches. 

So, whether you’re looking for last-minute gifts or want to improve your jewelry-making skills, we have compiled a list of 10 earring designs for memory wire beaded earrings. 

Let’s get straight into it! 

1. Beaded Memory Wire Earrings 

What’s not to love about these earrings? They are easy to make, go with a range of different outfits, and you get to show off your creation every time you walk out the door! 

For this tutorial, the instructions call for Czech beads, shiny silver findings, and faceted glass beads; however, you can completely customize the design with any leftover beads you may have for a personalized experience. 

Therefore, if you’re looking to create your own set of earrings, then memory wire is a great place to start. Since it doesn’t require any special or fancy techniques, you’ll have impressive designs conjured in minutes!

2. Spiral Peyote Tube Earrings 

While this peyote tube bead design looks complicated, it is easier to make than you may think! 

It is simply made by using a swatch of flat peyote that is then woven together (or zipped) to create this impressive design. 

Tip: use an even count of peyote to speed up the project. 

If you’re looking to use up any leftover beads, then this design is a great way to make a combination of different patterns. In fact, you’ll be surprised with how many patterns you’re able to make with a few different beads. 

3. Gemstone Wrapped Hoops

For this DIY, all you need is 2mm faceted gemstones and 26-gauge wire which is then wrapped together around a Nunn Design hoop. 

While these earrings may seem minimalist and dainty, they certainly make for a statement piece! 

These large hoops are decorated with gemstones that sparkle in the sunlight! Be careful as all your friends and family will be wanting a pair! 

The best part? You can swap out the red gemstones for whichever ones you want. Whether this is green, blue, or even orange – completely customize your earrings. 

4. Circular Brick Stitch Earrings 

Looking for a fun and fast way to create some jaw-dropping gorgeous patterns, then you’re going to love this circular stitch design. 

Whether you bead a circle around a drop bead, bead around a wire ring, or even around a regular bead – all techniques use the same stitch method. 

The beauty about this design is that you can make sections of the earrings anytime you have spare beads available, then connect them to the pattern later! 

With such little beading time, you’re able to create elaborate results!

5. Decreasing And Increasing On the Edges Of Brick Stitch

This is a twist of the contemporary brick stitch earrings that is much faster and easier to make than the classic. 

Simply replace the beaded tassels with strands of cut chain to make your earrings swing and shine in the sunlight. 

The top of the earring features a regular brick stitch with a simple decrease to create the iconic triangle design.

For the section, using larger beads will not only look amazing but will also cut down on the time you spend bead stitching. 

6. DIY Head Pin Earrings

Looking to highlight an extra special bead? Then these headpin earrings are a great way to do so. 

No mess, no fuss, with the DIY project, you’ll have many head pin earrings whipped up in minutes. 

For an easy twist, twist the headpins to create a small spiral at the end which is then lightly hammered to harden the wire. For extra sparkle and movement, consider adding one – or several! – extra dangle beads. 

Once you’ve mastered the simple spiral head pin earrings, you can now experiment with various different shapes, including diamonds, swirls, triangles, or even loops – the possibilities are endless!

7. Heavy Duty Memory Wire Hoop Earrings 

Make these heavy-duty memory wire hoop earrings by using the new Beadalon Memory Wire! This project is so simple, that you’ll find yourself making them again for all your friends and family!

Since the 1970’s hoop earrings have been all the crave. With this project, you’ll make your own pair using Czech beads!

8. Memory Wire Pendant Earrings 

These hoop earrings are made with a material known as memory wire. Essentially, a memory wire is a hardened wire that is packaged in a coil – similar to a slinky toy! 

A benefit to these earrings is that while the base material is tough and will hold your beads, they are lightweight enough not to drag down your earlobes. So you don’t have to worry about overcrowding your designs!

A few accent beads, a handful of seed beads, and a statement focal bead will have these plain boring wires transformed into masterpieces for colorful, vibrant jewelry.

Customize the different colors, beads, or lengths of your earrings for a fully customized experience. 

9. Crystal And Bead Hoops

Looking for more wire bending fun? Then you’re in for a treat! 

Simply take some round mandrel and wire and bend the loop around the hoop, add some special beads, and you’ve created a stunning pair of earrings! 

For a sparkling statement, you can even choose crystal beads. Once you have attached the beads, join the ends of the wire hoop together using a jump ring, and then add the finishing touches of ear wires. 

10. Seed Bead Hoop Earrings  

For this simple tutorial, you’ll need a love for earrings, a few strands of memory wire, and any leftover seed beads. 

Through this easy step-by-step guide, you will be rewarded with some simple, yet utterly breathtaking earrings. 

The base of the earrings is composed of some simple memory wire, then with an assortment of 8.0 and 11.0 beads of your choice, you can thread them into your preferred design. 

This earring design provides you with enough room to add your own creative flair to the design while offering helpful advice and tips and tricks along the way. 

Whether you decide to explore different hoop sizes, designs, or colors, this tutorial provides you with the required information to do so.
