Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knowledge of wirework is an advantage but not necessary as the clear step-by-step photographs will help to guide you in completing the earrings.
  • This tutorial will teach you how to construct the round frame, filigree coils, attach the filigree links and beads as well as making a pair of ear hooks.
  • Coiling tool is not needed as we'll be coiling short length of wire to make the filigree links.
  • After some practice, you will be able to complete the earrings in as little time as 2 hours or so. You can create pendants, bracelets, brooches, ear hoops, etc. until you have gained a little practice with this technique.
  • Please respect copyright & do not distribute, reproduce, sell or copy. However, you may make this design or something similar to sell.
  • Happy crafting!

Pattern Description:

I've always like the look of filigrees in some jewelry designs, so I created this earrings with the same technique (hand coiled filigree loops) that I made for my pendants. I added some beads to it which made it more elegant. The best thing is that you don't need a coiling tool to do the job!

I may have unknowingly made this my signature style!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 4cm (filigree component), 5.6cm from top of ear wire.

Materials:

  • 3 types of wire - 18g, 22g and 28g
  • 12 pcs, 3mm/4mm beads of your choice.
  • Wire cutter, chain nose plier, round nose plier
  • Nylon jaw plier, jump ring maker
  • A mandrel with 2.5cm in diameter (I've used a section of a pvc pipe)
  • Metal block/hammer (optional)

You Will Also Need:

  • Enthusiasm & crafting passion.
