Wired Chrysocolla Earrings

Pattern Description:

With this tutorial you will learn how to mold wires around oval stones to give shape to these beautiful pairs of earrings. The ear wire is made from the very wire used to wrap the oval stone, one piece only. That's why, I suggest you to work with the whole spool of wire, in order not to waste any cm of it.
Even beginners can make these earrings if familiar with wire. No advanced techniques are required, but handling the wire in waves and curls.
51 clear pictures spread along 18 main steps, within 13 pages will make this tutorial very easy to follow. I took pictures for every move, holding and releasing the stone, just to see how you should make it.
