These "Easy Earrings" use a finding we call an "Ear Drop",
three head pins, three 4mm beads and an ear wire to make each earring.
For the earrings shown at right, I made a custom ear wire incorporating
the same 4mm bead from the dangle into the ear wire. I like to make
my own ear wires for several reasons. First, I like to decorate the
ear wire in a manner that complements the earring body. Second, I
like to make larger ear wires than are sold as findings. Since these
earrings are rather light, a larger ear wire helps to keep them from
getting lost. Last, I like to wrap the ear wire closed using a
wrapped loop (This is part of my personal style.) These instructions will
include the steps to make these ear wires as well as the Easy Earring.
You can choose to use an ear wire finding if you are in a hurry.
