You might have noticed, but I’ve always been one of those “I can make it myself” kinda gals. 🙂
I think that’s why I find jewelry wire work so fascinating, you can make just about everything yourself: ear wires, head pins, eye pins, jump rings and even wire frames, like I show in today’s video.
And not just any wire frame, but one from twisted wire, which is far more interesting, doncha think?
Speaking of ear wires, I was feeling lazy and used purchased ones in these earrings, but I think I must go make and make a pair of sterling silver ear wires, because it’s fairly obvious that the ones I used don’t at all match the other pretty silver components.
You can share any projects based on this video at my Facebook page in the “Your Creations” album.
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
