Making handcrafted wire and beaded jewelry is a relaxing hobby that can bring you enjoyment and profit.
When the first loop has been finished, slide the next bead threaded on the wire against the first loop. The round-nose pliers are placed on the main wire next to the bead, but with a gap equal to two widths of the wire. This will make it possible to wrap the wire twice between the bead and the round-nose pliers. When the second wrapping is complete, the wire is trimmed as close as possible to the main wire. This is the same as Step 2, except that the last loop of the previous bead has to be within the new loop being formed. Artfully bent wire in combination with crystals and gemstones can produce attractive jewelry pieces. Some of the basic techniques include twisting the wire, wrapping a wire bundle, crimping or flattening the wrap, scrolling, and shaping.

Place one of your 3 cm wires on your steel block and use your hammer to flatten one wire end into a paddle shape. Next we’re going to make a plain loop on the opposite end of each of your 20 copper sticks. Use a Sharpie marker to make a mark on one jaw of your round nose pliers, so you can make all of your loops exactly the same size on your copper sticks.
To make the wire loop, use your round nose pliers to grasp the non-hammered end of your copper stick.

Maria Jenny, I’m glad to hear you found them so easy to make – and that they were a hit at your gift exchange! And thank you so much for asking – all of the free tutorials I post on this website are for you to make these items to sell, to give, to wear yourself – to share and enjoy! Many of my free tutorials here are things that have sold well for me, or that I feel intuitively would be good sellers – so I hope you sell the jewelry you make from these tuts and that they sell like hotcakes!
My only restriction is on the tutorial itself – that it not be republished, copied, or sold. I had bookmarked this page a while ago and finally found the perfect wire to make these earrings.
These earrings are an especially fab style with short hair or hair that’s pulled back, so all the wires can dance freely. Although I used mixed metals in my earrings, they’re also lovely with just one metal. Hammer and steel block (optional, but I think the hammering is part of what makes these earrings so fab!).
I just let my wires keep the curve they had from being part of the coiled-up packaged wire.
But if your wires aren’t curved, you can shape them around a soup can or vitamin bottle to give them a gentle curve.
Since we want all 6 loops to be the same size, we’re going to use a super-fine-tip Sharpie marker to mark a line on one jaw of our round nose pliers.
You can do a bit of extra hammering on the straight ends, to give them a nicely rounded flare. If your loops come open a bit during the hammering, simply use your pliers to close them again.
Hammering is optional in this project – but I really think it adds a lot to the finished look!
I recommend wearing these earrings with the longest dangles curving around your face instead of away from it. You can see me wearing these earrings in my Jewelry & Coffee video, Show People How to Wear Jewelry. By the end of this online video class, youa€™ll be designing and making your own artistic earwires, clasps, connectors, and pendant bails. Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing your inspirational craft with our Crafty Showcase last week! These are similar to an earring I wore yesterday but I love that yours are one of a kind and handmade.
These turned out perfectly and will make a great gift for my sister, whose Birthday is this week! My neck is so short though, I ended up cutting all wires a little shorter because they were getting caught on my shoulder and clothing, and they worked out fine! I really think I could save myself a lot of money if I could learn to make my own earrings. These look really amazing… I actually thought they were made from bra under-wires at first… ha, shows how much I know! Would Love to make these earrings so where would I find the correct wire or should I say what do I ask for!?!
Toni, first check your existing wire supplies in your craft room to see if you have any round wire a€“ anywhere from 16 to 20 gauge a€“ soft or half-hard.
Although I used a hardware store hammer for this project (as shown above in the supply list), I usually use a dome-face chasing hammer for flattening wire (available at most jewelry suppliers who carry jewelry tools).
If I simply want to hammer-harden a finished wire project without flattening it, I use a plastic, rubber, nylon, or rawhide hammer.
Open the split of the loop on back of your earring hook finding and then hang on the above bead part.

I’m pretty new to jewelry making and I wondered how those little paddles at the ends of the wires were made…and now I know! Need to make earrings this week to take to ArtSpace, a local gallery where I sell my jewelry. I’ve been wanting to work with wire wrapping techniques more and this seems like the perfect place to start.
I am learning to make wire jewelery and was struggling to get the circular shapes without the dents and uneven lines. Your tutorials are always so visual and clear that all levels of jewelry makers would be successful. I’ve made very similar earrings in sterling for a while now, sometimes with three wires, sometimes with two.
I’m bookmarking this page so that I remember to make these earrings as Christmas gifts next year.
Thank you so much for such a well written tutorial, I am going to replace those pair of earrings in the near future!
I now have three hammers, one which is a textured hammer and an array of wire, aluminum all sorts of wonderful things. With pair of well-designed brass earring hooks, pieces of natural Jade Beads and a section of brass wire, entire project will be done within less than 5 minutes.
Use the round nose plier to grasp the shorter branch of wire and then form a loop around the plier. Its vintage appearance will fit all your outfits and make you the most standing out star among crowds. I am shopping around for a chasing hammer…and have found literally dozens of lengths and weights. I’m pinning this tutorial so I can make some earrings like that for Christmas gifts this year.
Now after watching your video on the technique of creating a smooth circular shape, my earrings won’t look like they have been hit by a storm. The cake plate is to add heigth to the display, and the turntable ( or lazy susan) is so the whole trash can be used and easily veiwed by my customers.
I’ve been making earrings for several years, always with purchased findings, and have never quite worked up the nerve to experiment with wire.
Along with the rage of retro fashion, diy clip on earrings are destined to make a return to comfort style as well. I have these purple seed beads I bought for a present project that would be fun to do this with. I would love, LOVE, to be able to get away from silver-toned earwires, but I’ve never heard of a darker wire that is safe. For example, various colors of seed beads or E-beads can be added to the top wire, or the wire itself can be easily replaced by a leather or suede cord. But your tutorials are so beautifully done, starting to make sense(at last) to a very confused beginner.
