Hi all, today I wanted to share how to make your own ear wire. I decided awhile back to start making my own vs soley using already made ones. This is a great way to really make your jewelry 100% handmade. It's very easy to do and you'll save $$$$ doing it too :)
What you'll need:
20-22gauge half hard wire
Round nose pliers
Nail file to smooth down the sharp edges
Something round to bend the wire over to give it it's shape. I use a big fat marker or a hammer handle
Simple as that. I added some photos for visual aid :) Please let me know if you have any questions :)
Happy Earring making! I'll be posting up some new earrings I made this week and will be adding to the shop.
|What you'll need to get you started.|
|Cut your wire to the length you want. I usually do 2.5 inches.|
It will turn out like this.
Take your round nose pliers and make a loop at one end. I usually do both at the same time so they are even (at least close to even as possible).
Take the other end and make a little indention so the earring doesn't slip out when you wear them. Tada! You made your earwire !
Slip on on your gemstone or whatever design you have made, onto the earwire and you've completed your 100% hand made earrings!
