Wire-Wrapped Stones, Crystals & Clusters »
InstructionsFollowed the institution on how to wrap the wire, with the stones. However, I would not use glass and metal bead together, makes the earrings heavier then what I would like. They may eventually become necklace pendents. Loved the process, they were fun to make!!
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Whimsical, Funky, Classic, Casual, Cute, Traditional
20 Gauge Wire, 28 Gauge Wire, Assortment of glass beads (blue, teal, red), seed beads, and metal spacers.
What was your inspiration?
Southwest color mix. I love look of red and teal together.
What are you most proud of?
That they actually turned into earrings. I had problems early on, with the 20 gauge wire, not being strong enough (did not choose the correct wire), to make hoops. So I improvised with the chain and ear wire.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Choose your stones wisely. These earrings are heavier then what I would like. Will use smaller beads and less metal next time :)
