PATTERN DETAILS

You will find these earrings quick and easy to make. I am always trying to find ways to avoid wrapping wire in enclosed places and this pattern does just that using a single length of wrapping wire. They are 5cm/2" in length but instructions are included for varying the length. This project has been featured on the front cover of the UK magazine Beads & Beyond. 21 steps - 27 photos BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Make a loop Handle long pieces of wire Make wire wraps Make spirals SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 5cm/2"

My passion for jewellery designing and making started 12 years ago with a silversmithing course and I have since embraced other techniques such as stringing, bead weaving, chain maille, resin but my true love is wirework in which I now specialize. I have contributed a monthly project to Beads & Beyond for the past 3 years, written numerous tutorials which I sell on my website and I am the author of The Absolute Beginner's Guide: Making Wire Jewellery (published by Kalmbach books) which teaches you in great detail all the basic techniques you need to become proficient at wirework. Don't forget to download my free tutorial about the basic tools you need to get started in wirework.
