I often get requests for larger versions of my small hoops but this is the first time I have actually made a bigger pair. The customer is a belly dancer and wanted these for her costume. These hoops are all sterling silver and measure 1 1/4" in diameter. They were given a patina and then tumbled for a high shine finish. The opposite sides are the same as these.
