Wire Earrings

A few months ago I found some beautiful wire earrings online. They really inspired me to try crafting with wire, but I didn't get around to it until very recently.

For this project all you need is some wire, a pair (or two!) of pliers, and a bit of imagination. I got my wire from Michael's. It cost $10.99 plus tax (Canadian), but I got quite a lot of it.

Decide on a design. I picked a very simple design since it was my first time trying this out, but you can certainly be more adventurous. It might help to draw your pattern out on paper first so that you have a guide to follow.

I found the stainless steel wire kind of difficult to handle at first, but got used to having to put a little extra 'oomph' into it.

I'm really happy with how my earrings turned out. They're super light weight, elegant, and versatile.

If you try this project out, be sure to send me a picture of your finished product!

If you like this design, I strongly suggest you check out Lotus Handmade Hoops; their designs are so beautiful and whimsical!

Hugs and poops,
