DIY Modern Ear Wires 2 + WigJig Coupon1:00 PM
Creating findings from scratch makes your jewelry that much more unique and your own. Yesterday, I shared this modern ear wire with you and today, I have a slightly larger, curvier style to show you.
Cut two 3.5" pieces of 20 Gauge Pewter Soft Flex Craft Wire. Use the Nylon Jaw Pliers to straighten your wire piece. Place the 1" peg from the WigJig Premium Peg Set on the WigJig Olympus Lite. Wrap the two pieces of wire around the 1" peg together with one side slightly shorter then the other.
Remove your shaped wire and hold the two pieces of wire in your hand, line the shapes up so they are parallel to each other and trim away excess wire on each side so the two wire shapes are the same length on both sides. File the ends of the wire with a Cup Bur or a metal file.
Use your round nose pliers and create a loop on the two identical wires while holding them together. Then on the opposite side create a curve.
