|I try to name earrings either based upon what they look like, what they remind me of, or how I got the idea for the earring design. These particular earrings remind me of an Easter dinner in Frederick, MD, where one of our friends, Ashleigh, was wearing designer earrings similar to these. Her earrings had been cast out of a single piece of metal. My challenge was to connect a larger piece of metal for the body of the earring with a smaller piece of metal for the ear wire post. For the earrings at right, the body of the earring is 18G sterling silver and the ear wire post is 20G sterling silver. The connection is made with a loop in the earring body and by wrapping the thinner, 20G wire around the body several times. This is an advanced beginner's jewelry making project.||

|This WigJig jewelry making project is provided as
part of WigJig University - College of Jewelry Making Designs. We
try to provide interesting jewelry projects using beads, jewelry wire and
other jewelry supplies. We
hope that these pictures will provide you enough information for you to
complete this project. Some of the skills and jewelry making

beginners to jewelry making might need to visit the
