It’s been quite a while since I’ve published a jewelry tutorial. Today’s jewelry tutorial came to life due to a collaboration with allfreejewelrymaking.com. I also like to welcome all our new followers, thank you for joining our community.
There will be a surprise at the end of this tutorial, so stick around and continue reading…
What you’ll need:
(you can use a regular hammer and pliers, the concrete floor should also work as a working surface – just make sure you have some newspaper underneath, so you don’t engrave the rough texture of your concrete into your earwire while hammering…)
3. Use the end of your pliers to bend the ear wire, you can also use a round pen (if it has a rubber-covered area you want to use that, it will help you keep the earwire stable). The pen or pliers end shouldn’t be thicker than 9-10mm.
6. Now simply adjust your earwire by bending carefully toward the inside.
You may want to use a file for smoothing out the earwire ends, especially the one that goes into your ear. I use a file just for smoothing our earwires, it’s the easiest and fastest way to finish up an earwire.
(make sure you rinse your file with water after you have used it on your wire. I use this file for all my wire smoothing: Sponge Sanding and Buffers Polisher File)
