How to create twirl wire earrings

twirl wire earrings

Step One

Cut six 18cm pieces of your 0.8mm Bronze wire. You will need three lengths of wire for each earring.

Step Two

With your round nose pliers, fold the wire in half creating a loop around the round nose pliers.

Step Three

Hold the three loops together with round nose pliers and wrap around the loops 0.6mm bronze wire, wrap around two of your 0.8mm tails of wire.

Step Four

Choose six gems to add to your earrings (make sure that the hole is big enough for the 0.8mm wire to get through).

Step Five

Insert your gem onto a 0.8mm strand and curl the end of the wire, also curl the end of the 0.6 wire on top of the gem, to give that Vintage look.

Step Six

Repeat step 5 with another two gems and alternate with leaving a strand of wire without gems and just curl the ends of your wire.

Step Seven

With your fingers mould the strands of your earring is a S shape (as shown in the photo) and insert your shepherd hook in the three loops that you created in step 2.

Step Eight

Repeat step 2 to 7 with the other three 0.8 bronze wire left and you will have a fabulous pair of earrings.
