U Shaped Earrings Jewelry Making Project Made with Swarovski Sapphire BeadsU Shaped Earrings Jewelry Making Project Made with Swarovski Sapphire BeadsThese earrings are called "U" Shaped Earrings because the bottom wire component in the earring body is in the shape of the letter "U".  These same earrings could be made inverted, in which case the earring body would look like and ice cream cone.  The earrings also remind me of a circus clowns face, with the clown wearing a pointed hat and having a large blue nose.  We held a vote amongst all three names and "U" Shaped Earrings won.

This is an advanced beginners jewelry making project.  If you can successfully make bead dangles with wrapped or conventional loops you will be able to make these earrings.
