Project

Flower Earrings

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I love the paddle shaped dangles. A friend at jewelrylessons.com shared her hammering technique with me, and I love how smooth and even the dangles are. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The dangles are the most difficult part of the earrings, but all in all it's a very simple project. Basically it's nothing else than a few beads and beadcaps threaded on an eyepin.

What you will need

  • 18g and 20g copper wire
  • 14mm
  • 7mm and 5mm beadcaps
  • 3mm copper beads
  • 6mm faceted pietersite beads
