DIY Ear Wires

Make your own earrings, even if you don't have those premade hooks! Last week during our Facebook Live, Wyatt demonstrated how simple it is to make consistent ear wires using Artistic Wire Findings Forms. They are fixed peg jigs that allow you to make your own findings. It is recommended to used 20-24 gauge Artistic Wire, Beadalon German Style or any other soft-medium tempered wire.

Another essential tool when making ear wires is to use the Wire Rounder Tips with the Battery Operated Bead Reamer to make sure those ends don't poke too hard!
Use the Wire Rounder Tip attachments for smooth wire ends! 

Artistic Wire Findings Forms are also available in different shapes to make different components like toggle clasps, connectors, ear wires and even holiday shapes (perfect for Halloween since we're officially in Fall season). These are some creative jewelry pieces Sara Ellis did to get in the spirit!
