Statement jewellery is a trend here to stay and what a perfect way to start the new year… in style!

With this step by step tutorial, you will learn how to make a beautiful pair of statement earrings.

The base of the earrings will be made from memory wire with a selection of 4mm rounds (of your choice) clustered onto head pins to make a decorative statement focal point.

These earrings will look perfect paired up with a matching necklace so why not create something similar to finish off the look.

1

Step one

Take the memory wire and cut a complete round plus 3cm. Use an old pair of snips or special memory wire cutters as the memory wire will ruin ordinary cutters and snips.

2

Step two

Using round nose pliers, make a loop at one end of the wire. Make the loop going east to west so the loop lies flat.

3

Step three

Thread a 4mm round onto a feather head pin, bend the tail over to form a right angle.

4

Step four

With round nose pliers, grab the tail of the feather head pin just above the 4mm round, bring the tail back over the top of the pliers and bring down and wrap between the pliers and the round. neatly trim the excess wire. this forms a wrapped loop. Make 15 of each colour round, 60 in total.

5

Step five

Make a pile of all 60 wrapped loop charms , then randomly thread on to the memory wire so no pattern forms.

6

Step six

Take your round nose pliers and place them at the point on the memory wire where the open end wire meets the flat loop and bend upwards. Thread the tail through the flat loop.

7

Step seven

cut the wire to 1cm then form a loop. attach to a shepherd hook ear wire. Repeat all the steps for the second earing.
