Here are a pair of hoop earrings I made with copper wire and puka shells. Puka shells are very popular in Hawaii and because of that they are very hard to find, meaning they can still be found but not as plentiful as in say the 60s and 70s.

If you like these hoop earrings and would like to know how to make it I posted a tutorial. Just click on HERE to go to the tutorial.


Puka Shell Copper Wire Hoops by naturalmaui on Etsy, $8.99

They were so cute, they never saw a craft like that before so they would go up and say "are those little balloons?" and I would say "yes" and they would go "Wow!" LOL!

Ooooh soooo very pretty. I love earrings and shells, so they're perfect to me.

I still have my shell earrings with a wooden bead in between the shells and I still wear them.
