Retired - Naomi Earrings

PROJECT E2060
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
For this design, let the wire dictate the winding loops and curves. This project is meant to inspire you to create something completely unique.
Instructions
By following these instructions you will make one earring. Repeat this process to create a second earring.
  1. For instructions for how to do this technique please watch our video: How to Make Free Form Wire Loops.
  2. Using the Wubbers Bail Making Pliers, make a wire segment as shown in the video with the 18 gauge wire. You can model it after the video or you can make your own form.
  3. Clip the wire using your flush cutters. To round any sharp edges, use the Wooden Wire Rounder Tool.
  4. Next, take the 26 gauge wire and wire wrap the Czech Glass Druks on to your form as seen in the video.
  5. To the appropriate loop, attach the earring hook by opening the loop of the earring finding, in the same way you would a jump ring.
  6. All done!
