Project

Brass ear cuffs with tiger eye beads

Who is this project for? Women What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is a process of trial and error to get the right size of wire and length for your ear. I use 6 inches of 20g or 22g wire and the area that becomes the cuff to hold onto your ear is about 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 inches. The rest of it you can be creative with. I have invested in quite a few tools which definitely make this easier but it could be done with just round nose pliers if you practice.

Q&A with jhammerberg

Queen Sista asked:
Nice!!! I would like to make them. Are there any instructions?
jhammerberg answered:
No, I just played around with the wire until I came up with this. Etsy has many sellers making similar items. A search will give you lots to look at. See the advice above for the concrete numbers I use. The rest is just trial and error

Hello Bindi from India. I do have other designs in my Etsy store. jhammerberg.etsy.com I started making earrings for non pierced ears because my daughter does not have nor does she want to have her ears pierced. Thanks for commenting :)
