A friend of mine had given me some craft items to use. She also gave me left over embroidery hoops. I didn't know what to do with them, until I started making jewelry and attending craft shows. I use them as a display to house the earrings. I buy material (heavy cotton works the best) in different colors and stretch it over the hoop, making it as tight as I can. I sew up the remaining fabric, going around the back of the hoop, also making sure the hoop was tight. I stick the earrings through the material and if needed secure in the back.
