Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

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.
