Description:

I came across this flat aluminum wire in Michael’s and was immediately struck by the possibilities. I discovered to my pleasure that it hammers and textures beautifully, is lightweight, and once work-hardened, is quite strong. The coloured wire loses its colour when hammered but in a beautiful, subtle way that suggests a patina.

This fabulous little pair of earrings is colourful, light, and catches the light gorgeously.

By changing the colourway, size, and number of beads, you can create many fetching pairs of earrings that will be great for sale, for gifts, or to match that perfect outfit!

35+ crisp, close-up photographs in two dozen steps capture the process for making these irresistible little gems.

I write my tutorials for the absolute beginner. Here in addition to the design itself, I talk about creating symmetry with earring designs and how to properly open and close purchased ear-wires.

To complete this tutorial you should have basic knowledge of wire tools.
