About this design:

I was looking at tutorials on and found this free tutorial for these wire earrings. This is my version of it. I used a heavier gauge of wire to make the hoops, and I made my own ear wires.


14 gauge copper wire 20 gauge copper wire lime green mop beads

    Thanks ladies. These were fun to make.
    Deb I started out wrapping the wire around a
    1 1/2″ pipe, but I think it got bigger when I hammered it, because I had originally used 16 gauge wire and used the same pipe and they weren’t nearly as large.

    these are terrific! is the hoop soldered, or just touching? I love hammered copper (okay, I just love copper!).
