***07/2012
This is the first tutorial I published back in late 2007. I started to retire it, and changed my mind.
I've updated it to include metric measurements; removed some broken links and added new ones; made some cosmetic tweaks; and oh yes, and changed it to ?FREE.?:))

Bobbi

Materials:

  • Minimum 61" 21 gauge square wire. (And 4" 20g round wire if you plan to make your own ear wires). I used Gold Filled in the tutorial, but Sterling and copper will work just as nice. If you use Sterling, you might want to use Silver Black or LOS, to oxidize your earrings, to add to the vintage style.
  • Wire cutters, flat-nose pliers, round-nose pliers, ruler, marker (sharpie), pin-vise, pen knife, masking or quilters' tape, and a short piece of dowel, to bend your wire on. Optional : The quick and easy Earring Thing, from a wonderful Etsy Shop - GlitterCritter - http://glittercritter.etsy.com Lilly's Bead Box, also an Etsy shop htt;//lillysbeadbox.etsy.com, carries the Silver Black I mentioned.

What inspires me??? Hmmm..... Everything!!..... I'm not being cheeky, everything seems to inspire me - most days' designs and ideas pop into my head, and I'm not fully aware of what triggered them. I keep notepads everywhere, and have even had to pull my car out of traffic, to jot down design ideas before they evaporate. Though after cutting off a Sheriff last year, I am more careful to look ...
