It’s been so long since my last post eek! I’ve literally had zero free time so I’m treating myself to a study break to make some earrings.
Here is the Anthro version (by Nashelle)
1. Begin by cutting 2 7″ pieces of the 16 ga wire.
2. About an inch from one end, curve the wire around your cylinder (I used a sharpie marker for this)
3. Curve it again in about 3/4″ so that it looks like an S
4. Continue curving with the sharpie until you have a total of 5 bends and a piece of wire that looks like this. Cut off excess wire if you need to.
5. Repeat steps 2- 4 with the second piece of wire so that they match perfectly!
6. Hammer just the ends of both earring frames so that they aren’t sharp.
7. Cut a piece of 26 ga wire and fold it in half. Wrap it around the end of the beginning of the earring about 5 times.
8. Put 2 beads on one wire and wrap it around the frame like this. Continue to do this, alternating which wire you put the two beads on each time. I know this sounds confusing, so hopefully the pictures help.
9. Before you switch bead colors, wrap the wire twice.
10. Instead of two at a time, begin wrapping with tourmaline beads one at a time, still alternating between the two wires.
11. continue until the end of the frame, then wrap a few times and trim. use the chain nose pliers to tuck the ends in tightly.
12. repeat beading for earring #2
13. open the earring hook loop and attach it in the middle of the top bar of the earring frame, like this.
14. wear. duh.
