I made today earring hooks by self and found that 2 inches wire is too long for wire and when I cut it a little it became too short for hook.

So what should be the length of earring hooks wire before making?  Also how much it should be in front and in back?  I can understand its depend upon style however what is the general guide about earring hook length?

Also which are the wire can we use for earring hooks? I used artistic wire non-tarnish brass 20 guage.

Is it okay to put in piercing ears?
