Earrings Design Alternatives (Continued):    Double Spiral Wire & Beads Earrings with Spacer Bar Jewelry Making Project

 Double Spiral Wire & Beads Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectOur second earring alternative is the design shown at left.  In this design, we use the same double spiral wire component with the same beads at the bottom, but the connection between the double spiral component and the ear wire is made by two spacer bars and a jump ring as shown at right.  The steps for making these spacer bars is shown below.  You place your initial loop in a straight segment of 1 1/2" long, 20 gauge wire on peg A and then wrap the wire around peg B.  When removed from the jig the wire will appear as shown center-left below.  Cut the excess wire with a flush cutter and close that loop in the spacer bar and it will appear as shown center-right below.  Finally, complete the spacer bar by converting the "P" loops on either end of the spacer bar into eye loops using your round nose pliers.  You can view the finished spacer bar below-right.  (You can find instructions on how to convert a "P" loop to an eye loop here.)  Make two spacer bars using this same technique.  Connect one spacer bar to one side of the double spirals wire component and the other spacer bar to the opposite side of the double spirals wire component.  Use a medium size jump ring to connect the top of both spacer bars to your ear wire as shown above-right.  (You can find our free instructions for making a jump ring here.)  Again, the finished earring is shown at the top of this page on the left. 

Our third design alternative is described on the following page.
