Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • making wire spirals

Pattern Description:

This lesson teaches you a simple technique for making ear cuffs that look like a row of beads climbing up your ear. These look great worn as a pair, but if you prefer the asymmetrical look, make one ear cuff and an earring to match for the other ear.

The frame used for this ear cuff can be turned into many other designs. By using different beads and adding different wirework techniques, you can create many other looks.

These cuffs are shaped as an oval for more comfort when wearing, however, you can also shape them like the more traditional round ear cuffs if that is what you prefer.

Materials:

  • 13" of 20g dead soft wire
  • 5' of 26g or 28g dead soft wire
  • 14 4mm beads
  • 2 charms or dangles (optional)

You Will Also Need:

  • Chain nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Flat nose pliers
  • 6mm mandrel (or small piece of a 6mm wooden dowel) (for oval shaped ear cuff) OR 8mm mandrel (for a rounded ear cuff)
  • Marker
