Class Description: Ear wires...Do you buy them or make your own??
Many, many years ago when I first started making jewelry, ear wires were one of the things I always found so intimidating...Once I learned how to make my own, and practiced, practiced...I’ve never bought ear wires again. I can make them as I need them, on demand. You can make different styles that you can't buy, and make them to fit and accent your earrings. Making your own ear wires brings that extra level of handcrafted to your pieces.
In this VEC Short we will cover the types of materials and tools you’ll need to make your own earwires. You will watch several live demos and make all types of ear wires and how to customize them to your pieces and your own style. I will also show you various styles that can be soldered onto your earrings as well. You’ll leave this short inspired and confident to start making all your own earwires.
