Simple Wire Wrapped Earrings - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating:

Wire wrapping magicians can conjure up fairy-tale jewellery. Not all of us will turn the wires so fancifully right away, but maybe you will try a new adventure? We will show you how to make simple wire wrapping earrings. Maybe one of you will be charmed by the wires enough to develop new skills! Ready? Let's Get Creative!

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above do not match the 'Products Used List'.

We believe that jewellery should be as individual as you are and so our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your creative imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery?

Step 1

Cut about 20 cm of wire.

Start wrapping it around the base. Adjacent. Wire next to wire. It can be difficult with my hands, I help myself with flat nose pliers, but round nose pliers should also be fine.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 2

We wrap this 3 to 4 times.

Step 1

Step 3

We thread a 4mm bead on the wire. we put it on the wire so that it is fairly even on both sides before we start braiding again. 

Step 1

Step 4

Now we wrap the base with the wire on the other side. We make a wire next to the wire and adjacent to the base. We wrap about 4 times.

NOTE - the number of times we wrap the base also depends on the size of the beads in the second row. If they are bigger, we will make the braid a little wider so that the bow next to the arch will fit nicely.

Step 1

Step 5

We thread the wire 8 Toho 11/0. You can check whether to subtract the bead or add it.

It all depends on how the wrap came out. It is important that the beads fill the entire wire as we make a bow over the previous bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

And we wrap the wire around the base.

We will be threading 3mm Fire Polish beads now, so I did it once more. I have 5 base wire fins.

Step 1

Step 7

Take 6 Fire Polish 3mm beads and bend them into a bow over the previous beads. We wrap the base several times with a wire.

The wire is soft, everything can be arranged nicely.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

The wires that are left to are cut off at the base and with flattened with pliers so that they do not get caught on the scarf, turtleneck or blouse.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

I'll do one more bow at the bottom of the base. I will start with a FirePolish 3mm bead and only use Toho 11/0 for the following rows.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 10

Using jump rings, we attach earring bases or earwires and we can enjoy our really unique earrings.

Step 1

Step 11

Only one ornament can be made on a tassel base. See how nice these earrings look using our colourful tassels?
