Beaded Earrings
There are five jewelry techniques that are involved in making these earrings.  The first is to make the basic wire component by wrapping 20 gauge wire around pegs on the jig.  The second technique is to use a chasing hammer and anvil to harden the piece.  The third technique is to use chain nose pliers to bend and shape the wire.  The fourth technique is to wrap the 20G wire around itself to make the basic wire component into a stable piece.  The final jewelry technique is to use very fine wire (24 or 26 gauge) to wrap around the 20G wire finishing the piece and setting the shape in place. In this piece, we wrap wire around wire to fix the shape instead of soldering.

Jewelry Supplies Required:

Tools Required:

  • Ten inches of 20G wire per pair of earrings (1/2 hard wire will work best if available.)
