I love working with wire; bending, coiling, twisting, making it do what I want it to do, and I made these earrings using 24 gauge Artistic wire in aqua and lemon coiled on a narrow mandrel.
I made the headpin by making three tiny coils on one end of a length of 20 gauge wire to hold the wire bead and then attached to earwire.
The colour combinations are almost endless, try orchid and gunmetal, black and silver and one of my favourites, fuchsia and tangerine.
TIP: Knitting needles make wonderful mandrels.
Totally fun and unique. Love the color combo
Love these earrings!
I am going to make several pairs of these! I may try three colors of wire! Fun! Thank you, Heather!
tangerine, red and fuchsia looks fantastic!
