Featuring a boho-inspired design and rich color palette of red, blue, and gold, these casual wire wrapped earrings are as fun to wear as they are to make.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. To make these earrings, please watch the video: How to Make the Wire Wrapped Boho Earrings
  2. In the video you will learn how to make a paddle head pin, how to make a unique earring finding, and how to create a simple loop. You will also learn how to physically make and assemble these earrings from start to finish.
Note: As you are making these earrings, feel free to experiment and add more seed bead dangles, fewer, or even make a different shape for the main body of the earring. With wire you can really create anything that you like.
