I was trying to figure out what to make for my craft today so I was looking through my supplies and found that I had a lot of wire laying around. What better project to work on with a bunch of wire than wire-wrapped earrings?
With the right tools, these earrings are very easy to make. You can make them without the tools but it is more time consuming and your fingers are definitely going to get roughed up. Your choice, though!
Make a circle with the top of your wire using the largest gauge on the pliers.
Using the largest circular peg that comes with your Thing-A-Ma Jig, wrap the wire around it so you have something that looks like the image above.
To get a slightly smaller circle, wrap the remaining wire around one of the plier handles.
Make the same small circle as your did in step 1, but instead of using the largest gauge, use the smallest.
Wrap your smaller wire around one side of the bottom circle, then slide your pearl onto the other end of the wire.
Do the same thing with the wire on the opposite side.
Attach your hooks and you have some adorable new black pearl earrings! Okay, they aren’t black pearls, they’re faux pearls, but I still like them just the same.
Let me know what you think!
