Earrings Design Alternatives (Continued):    Double Spiral Wire & Beads Earrings withTop Wire Component Jewelry Making Project

 Our second earring alternative is the design shown at right. In this alternative we make a "top wire component" to connect between the ear wire finding and the double spiral wire Double Spiral Wire & Beads Earrings with Top Wire Componentcomponent.  The pattern for the top wire component is shown at left.  You use a straight segment of 20 gauge wire about 2 1/2" long.  Make an initial loop in this wire segment and place the initial loop on peg 1 in the pattern.  Then wrap the wire around peg 2, and finally around peg 3 as shown.  Remove the wire from the jig and it should appear as shown below-left.  At this point you need to cut the excess wire and then close the loop made on peg 3.  When this is completed the wire will appear as shown below center-left.  In order to make the top wire component connect to the double spiral wire component you need to first convert both "P" loops on the end of the wire component to eye loops and then rotate the loops 90 degrees.  Below center-right you can see the two loops converted from "P" loops to eye loops.  Below right you can view the finished top wire component with the two loops rotated 90 degrees.  To rotate the two loops, you grasp one loop at a time in the jaws of your chain nose pliers and twist the pliers until the loop is rotated 90 degrees.  Rotate the loop on one side clockwise and on the opposite side counter-clockwise. 

To assemble these earrings you will need to open both loops in the top wire component and then connect that component to the double spirals wire component.  Once they are connected you will then need to close both loops.  Add your ear wire finding to the top loop in the top wire component by opening the loop in the ear wire finding, connecting it to the loop in the top wire component and then closing the loop in the ear wire finding.  To complete these earrings you will need to add your beads to the bottom of the earrings as we discussed in the prior pages.
