PROJECT E8021
Designer: Alexandra Smith

These intricate statement earrings offer a wire wrapped variation on the traditional woven Gods Eye design. Silver 24 gauge wire is wrapped onto a contrasting 20 gauge gold wire frame, wtih Czech glass fire polish bead accents and a rose tassel.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Make a Wire Wrapped Gods Eye. Using what you have learned in the video, begin by creating your 20 gauge wire frame and attach your 15 inch length of 24 gauge wire at the center for wrapping the design, as shown in the video.
  2. Wrap 8 layers of wire onto each of the 4 quadrants of your Gods Eye as shown in the video, but you will not be adding beads. Coil and clip the extra wire (see photo for reference).
  3. String 1 Czech glass silver bead onto each of the 4 points of your 20 gauge wire frame, and make simple wire loops on the ends of the wires as shown in the video.
  4. Attach your tassel and earring hook as shown in the video. Enjoy your earrings!
