Retired - Kaputt Wire Wrapped Earrings

Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
These edgy modern earrings pair the unexpected: neat orderly wire wraps with a bold asymmetrical pendant. The result is both beautiful and alluring.

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. The video How to Make the Kaputt Earrings demonstrates how to make these earrings from start to finish.
  2. A couple notes: Silver-filled wire and earring findings were chosen because of the fine quality of the Kaputt pendants used, however, you could also use plated and follow the same technique.
  3. Also, to make this into a jewelry set, simply create one extra wire wrapped Kaputt pendant and hang it from a premade chain.
