Simple Jewelry Wire Ear Wire Jewelry Making ProjectSimple Jewelry Wire Ear Wire Jewelry Making DesignThe prices for jewelry findings has increased significantly in the past couple of months.  Unfortunately, the prices for gold and silver have increased and these metals are the raw materials for most jewelry findings.  For those who are concerned over the high price for jewelry findings, here is a project that will allow you to make your own ear wires.  Even better, this project will allow you to customize your ear wires so that they appear hand made by a professional. 

In this project, we use a 1/2" Super Peg to make a round ear wire, but we make the ear wire with a 2mm to 4mm bead.  Ideally, the bead would be the same color as the larger beads used in the body of the earring.  Please see the pictures at right for the picture of the ear wire by itself and for a sample earring made with that ear wire. 

Our free, step-by-step instructions for making the Simple Jewelry Wire Ear Wire begin on the following web page.
