Quirky Corky Earrings
by Alicia Rivera.
(East Coast USA)
My 13 year old daughter brought home 4 wine corks to make some earrings with as part of a costume for a performance she was recently in.
I talked her through some simple wire techniques to make two of the corks wearable and when her sister, my 17 year old, saw them she wanted a pair too.
I made this pair for my oldest using some wire scraps and some random glass beads that I save specifically for “fun” or tester designs.
The fundamental design is Rena’s Beaded Hoop Earwires with the corks added. I also added top spirals to help stabilize the center wire through the huge hole left by the corkscrew.
There is also a tute for the French Hoop Earwires.
