Flemish Spiral Jewelry Wire & Beads Earring Jewelry Making ProjectFlemish Spiral Jewelry Wire & Beads Earring Jewelry Making ProjectWe call the "S" shaped wire component that roughly resembles a large figure 8, a Flemish Spiral.  We call it that for a perfectly sound reason -- our mother told us to.  In doing some research into the term, it seems that a "Flemish Spiral" is defined as an "S" or "C" shaped scroll used in Flemish Renaissance furniture.  While this doesn't translate directly into jewelry, we plan on continuing to call this wire component the Flemish Spiral for the reason we stated -- our mother told us to. 

Here we show two earrings designs and a bracelet design.  After watching a very short video clip on the Miss America Pageant, we noticed that several contestants were wearing earrings that were truly shoulder dusters.  In fact, we notices some earrings that appeared to be about 6-8 inches long.  Since it seems that very long earrings are a coming trend, we decided to make some longer earrings.  The earrings at right are about 4 1/2" long. 

Our discussion of this jewelry making project will begin with the earrings at right, will also discuss how to make a shorter version of these earrings, will discuss alternative designs like the earrings on the left and finally, we will discuss how to make a jewelry wire bracelet like the one shown here.
