Earrings

Here you will find tutorials for handmade earrings of all kinds.  I enjoy playing with making these because they are often easy, and don’t take a lot of time.

Lets talk about the supplies that you would need first for your handmade earrings.  One of my favorite sort of earring is this kind is a French hoop earring, like THIS ONE or THIS ONE. Another must have thing is a pair of jewelry pliers.  Like these right HERE. You would also need to get some thin wire, like THIS ONE HERE or THIS ONE.  Be careful when purchasing your wire.  Remember that the higher the gauge, the thinner the wire.  So gauge 16 is much thicker then 28.  To be honest I prefer to buy the wire from a brick and mortar shop where I can touch and feel it, but I also have bought it on amazon before.   For earrings I mostly use thin wire, but if you’d like a thicker one look for a smaller gauge number.

I also use DOT BALL HEADPINS for when making simple earrings.

Of course you will need beads and such.  For that stuff I also like to use brick and mortar stores, because I like to touch them before buying.  I especially like smaller independent shops, because they have the most fun stuff, but AC Moore and Michaels have a nice selection as well.  I have also used Amazon and Fire Mountain Gems before, and was very happy with them.

At the moment there are just a few tutorials here, but I will add many more as I work on them!
