Oval Jewelry Wire Ear Wire Findings Jewelry Making Project

These ear wires are rather unique and very easy to make.  For that reason, this is an excellent beginners jewelry making project.  The ear wires are made with a 3/4" Super Peg or a Spiral Maker for one of our WigJig tools and one regular metal peg. 

For those of our readers who want to make their own ear wires this is an excellent project.  The ear wires are not something that you see every day and are a very good way to make an interesting earring with a single large bead and a head pin.
