This jewelry making project is intended to show another style of ear wire finding and how to make that finding from jewelry wire. We call this ear wire the "Omega Ear Wire" because the shape of the ear wire is very similar to the upper case version of the 22nd and last letter in the Greek alphabet, the letter Omega. For this ear wire, we made it two ways. We made it using a 1/2 inch Super Peg as shown at right and using a 5/16 inch Super Peg as shown at left. The design at right will be called the "Thick" Omega ear wire and the design at left will be called the "Thin" Omega ear wire.
This ear wire design has some advantages over the Shepherd's Hook style ear wire that is so common. Because of the shape of these ear wires, they will stay on better than the Shepherd's Hook ear wires.
In our Alternative Designs section we will also provide instructions for making these ear wires so that the beads can be interchangeable.
These ear wire designs are beginner's jewelry making projects. This design is suitable for making as a students first jewelry making project.
