New Wubbers Pliers

Oooooh, I am so excited about our 4 new pairs of Wubbers Pliers. I've just started to play with them and wanted to share one of my first projects with you. These earrings are super simple but look really elegant! I'm sure that you could easily adorn these further with ribbon, beads, leather, etc. In fact, I did, check out two options at the very end of this blog. So cool!


Materials:

Tools: 


 1. Using the smaller bail, create your first loop using the 18 gauge craft wire.


2. Place the loop directly above the smaller bail.


3. Using the larger bail, create 1.5 loops with .5 overlapping.


4. Repeat Steps 2-3, 5 more times for a total of 6 large loops. Trim the excess wire.


5. Work harden the wire piece using a nylon tipped hammer on a hard flat surface by tapping the wire several times.
