It's that time of year again when we send out notes of love to one another and remember how important those we care about are to us. So what says I love you more than something you made just for them? Pretty much nothing as far as I am concerned. These earrings are easy to make and your friends and family will love them! You can whip out a pair for every lady in your life, and yes it is quite all right to make some for yourself while your at it.
Use my directions for the ear wires in this link.(4" of 20 gauge will be used)

Another great project for those found objects, stones, shells and odd shape pieces. This pendant is simple in technique yet powerful in it's beauty. You can also tuck the wires under the base wire for a cleaner look, I got the inspiration for this pendant design from Eva Marie Sherman's Infinity wrap published in Wire Jewelry magazine February/March 2015 issue.
*For a more advanced design trim the tails 1/4" past base wires instead of wrapping them around the bail, then curl them under the base wires. Be careful not to scratch the stone or object. You can use an awl to bring the base wires away from the object to make it a bit easier. Then if stone is to loose tighten the bail wires by placing the dowel into the bail and twist until the wires tighten up around your object.
I am a self taught jewelry designer and artist. I studied fashion design and come from a very creative family.
