Twined Copper Earrings I

Project Description

Who is this project for? Girls Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? Twining is addictive :D. Right now I'm trying out different patterns. This is my first pair of earrings based on Mary Tucker's (wiredelements) "Twining With Wire Lesson Jewelry Tutorial" (https://www.etsy.com/listing/93833834/twining-with-wire-lesson-jewelry). What advice would you give someone starting this project? The twining technique isn't difficult at all but it takes time and needs a lot of patience. But it's very versatile and can be used for almost any kind of jewelry. If you want to see more examples what you can do with it, please have a look at Mary's Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/wiredelements/. You can find baskets, cuffs, earrings, pendants... - lots of beautiful things.
