Type:

Earrings

Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to make simple loops.

Pattern Description:

When ParaWire first came out with their antique copper colored wire, I immediately thought of these earrings. I really love the color and being able to twist square wire adds an entirely different look to the earrings!

Once you learn the technique of framing the beads in the earrings, you can use different shaped beads, too!

  • The earrings are about 1 1/2" long and at their widest point, about 3/4".

Materials:

  • 6" 18-gauge square antique copper wire
  • 4" 20-gauge round antique copper wire
  • 1'6" 26-gauge roung antique copper wire
  • 2 14-mm round turquoise beads or beads of your choice
  • 2 2.5-mm antique copper jump rings
  • NOTE: The earrings pictured were made with antique copper craft wire but you can use whatever color of wire you wish. Just be sure to use the specified gauges and shapes.

You Will Also Need:

  • Flush cutters
  • Flat nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire straightening pliers
  • 17 mm mandrel for shaping the frame wire for the earrings (Options: Ring mandrel or a Sharpie Fine Point Permanent Marker)
  • 12" ruler
