I want to attempt to make some hooped earrings using memory wire, I have some that can be used for bracelets, do I have to buy some of a specific circumference for earrings.

Thanks in advance x

You can get a smaller size, I think about an inch across that I have used for wine glass charms. Not sure I would want to use it for a loop actually going through my ear - not sure what the metal is and not sure how easy it would be to smooth the end.
