ECT TV Episode 71: Introduction to Making Earrings

Intro to Making Earrings

Today I have a special edition of Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV (ECT TV)!  Introduction to Making Earrings!

In this episode you’ll learn everything you need to know to get started with making earrings plus a simple earring tutorial.

Watch the video:

 

Wire:

The generally accepted gauge of wire for making earring wires is 20 gauge.  Since you’re making your own earrings if that feels too thick for you you can always try 22 gauge and experiment so that you feel comfortable.

You may use other wire when creating earrings that are other gauges as well.

Metal:

If you have sensitivity to metal in your ears, for your earring wires you may need to use sterling silver.  (You probably want to practice making earrings wires with less expensive wire before switching over to sterling silver.)

If you don’t have any allergies to metal, you probably can use any wire.

Alternatively, you can simply purchase earring wires at your favorite supply store.  Again, if you have metal allergies, look for sterling silver or you may be able to use surgical steal earring wires.

Beads:

The main concern when you’re making earrings is the weight of the earrings.  You don’t want anything too heavy that will pull on your ears and be uncomfortable.

If you’re making earrings for yourself, you can make them as heavy as you like, but still be careful not to make them too heavy.

If you’re making earrings for someone else, make them as light as you can.

That being said, using large heavy beads isn’t the best idea for earrings, but use your own judgment.  That goes for anything else that you might add to your earrings.

Simple Earrings Tutorial

Next I’ll show you how to make a simple pair of earrings.  First you’ll find a step-by-step tutorial to make your own earring wires.  They’re pretty simple to make, but you don’t have to make your own earring wires. You can buy they already made at a jewelry supply store.

Earring Wires

Tools and Materials:

  • 20 gauge half-hard, round wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Sharpie or other marker to bend around
  • Jewelry file
  • Rawhide, nylon or hard plastic hammer and steel block (optional)

Step #1

Earring Wires

Cut 2 pieces of wire approximately 3 inches long.  It doesn’t matter exactly how long they are, just that they are exactly the same length.

Step #2

Earring Wires

Flush cut both ends of each wire.  To make a flush cut use the back of most wire cutters toward the work (or what you’re leaving behind.)

Step #3

Earring Wires

Now we’ll make a loop on one end of the wires.  You learned how to make a loop in the “3 Tips” as well. Hold the wire in round nose pliers. The wire should be at the top of the pliers, but not poking through.  Use the tip of your round nose pliers because we just want to make a small loop.

Step #4

Earring Wires

Earring Wires

Twist your wrist away from you while wrapping the wire around pliers.  When you have twisted as far as your wrist will allow, readjust the wire and pliers and complete the loop.  Repeat for the other wire.

Step #5

Earring Wires

Bend the wires around a Sharpie or other pen or marker to form a hook.  I find it helpful to do both wires at one time so they’re the same.

The end with the loop will be shorter than the other end.

Step #6

Earring Wires

Earring Wires

Earring Wires

Use chain nose pliers to make a bend in the wires approximately at the same spot as the loop on the other side of the hook.

Step #7

Earring Wires

Trim off any excess wire making a flush cut.

Step #8

Earring Wires

Use a file or burr cup to file the end of the wire so it’s not sharp but rounded.

Step #9

Earring Wires

Harden the earring wire with a nylon, rawhide or hard plastic hammer.  This step isn’t absolutely necessary, but will make your earring wires sturdier.

Earring Wires

Now we’ll make a bead dangle to place on the earring wires to make a simple pair of earrings.

Simple Earrings

Simple Earrings

Tools and Materials:

  • Bead
  • Headpin
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Bent nose pliers

Step #1

Simple Earrings

Slide a bead onto a headpin.

Hint:  Check to see if your bead will stay on the headpin or if the stopper on the headpin is smaller than the hole in your bead.  If it slides off, you can either add a smaller bead like a seed bead first and then your larger bead or make your own decorative headpin that will hold the bead on.

(You can find free tutorials on my website for decorative headpins such as knotted headpins or spiral headpins.)

Step #2

Simple Earrings

Hold the headpin approximately ¼ inch above the bead in round nose pliers.

Step #3

Simple Earrings

Wrap the headpin around your round nose pliers to form a loop.

Step #4

The loop will be off-center.  To center it hold the loop in chain nose pliers and wrap around one time while pulling the bead out straight.

Step #5

Simple Earrings

Make 2 additional wraps keeping them close together and straight.

Step #6

Use your chain nose pliers to make sure the end isn’t poking out.

Repeat to make a second matching bead dangle.

Step #8

Open an earring wire.

Step #9

Ways to customize these simple earrings:

 

Dangle Earrings

Add extra bead dangles to your earring wires.

Paper Bead Earrings

Use fun beads!  (These are paper beads.)

How to Make Dangle Earrings

Add more than one bead on the headpin.  I stacked disc beads for this pair of earrings.

How to Make Spiral and Gemstone Chip Earrings

These earrings have several gemstone beads and use spiral headpins, but it’s the same basic technique.

Layered Wire Wrapped Earrings

For these earrings, I used spiral headpins and then added a couple charms to the earring wires as well.


Earrings are a quick way to express yourself and your creativity.

  • They don’t take a lot of time to make.
  • You can express your creativity when you’re actually making them.
  • Plus, they have the bonus feature that you can express your creativity when you’re wearing your one-of-a-kind creations as well.
  • (Plus the bragging rights and confidence building of “Oh, you love these?  I made them!”)

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant Tutorial

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant

See my beach inspiration from an art journal page to a piece of jewelry and learn how to make a beaded hoop pendant. You can make it beachy like I did or use any beads you like!

Here’s today’s video episode:

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant

Step-by-Step Photo Instructions:

These are the step-by-step photo instructions of the exact same tutorial that’s in the video.

Materials and Tools:

  • Beads of your choice **
  • 20 gauge half-hard, round wire, any metal you like
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Bent nose pliers
  • Something cylindrical to form your hoop around.  I used a small candle, but you can use anything that’s the size you’d like for your pendant to be.  You could use a large size on your ring mandrel.
  • Cord or chain to put your pendant on

** I used beads from a thrifted necklace.  They were small wooden beads.  This will work with any beads you like.

Beach Themed Art Journal Page

I took my inspiration for this pendant from the colors and theme of the art journal page I shared last week.

Step #1

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant

Wrap the wire around your cylindrical object.  Leave a total of 3 inches or more excess wire.  (1 1/2″ on each side past the point where the wires cross.

Step #3

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant

Twist the wire once.  Make sure that the beads are close to the bend so that it looks like a continuous hoop of beads.

Toubleshooting:  In the video I actually messed up this part leaving a break in the beads and fixed it, so if you have any problems make sure to watch the video.

Hint:  At any time if your loop gets out of shape, just put it back around your cylindrical object to make it a circle again.

Step #4

ECT TV Episode 70: Beaded Hoop Pendant

Hold one of the wires in round nose pliers.  Wrap the wire around to form a loop.

Hint:  If one of your wires is longer than the other, use that wire.

Step #5

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet Tutorial

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Today I have a quick and simple anklet tutorial for you today!

Yesterday I shared my process from inspiration to final jewelry piece for this anklet, but today I have the step-by-step tutorial for how to make this piece.

In this tutorial you’ll learn:

  • How to make a wire wrapped bead link with multiple beads;
  • How to open and close jump rings; and
  • How to put it all together to make a sweet anklet.

Here’s today’s Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV (ECT TV) video:

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Step-by- Step Photo Instructions:

These are the step-by-step photo instructions of the exact same tutorial that’s in the video.

Tools and Materials:

  • Beads – you can use any beads you like, but I choose 3 different beads that are 3 different colors to go along with my inspiration.  My beads are all recycled glass beads.
  • Chain – use any chain you like.  I have a collection of smaller pieces of chain leftover from other projects that I used for this project
  • Jump rings – I used 7mm jump rings, but feel free to use any sturdy jump rings you like
  • 20 gauge, half-hard wire
  • Lobster clasp
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Bent nose pliers

Step #1

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

I used a few beads on each strand.  I’ll show you how to make 1 strand and then you just repeat the process for each strand.

Alternatively, you could just make one strand.

Cut a piece of wire approximately 3 inches longer than the beads for one strand.

Hold the wire 1 1/2 inches from the top in round nose pliers.

Step #2

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Wrap the wire down and around the pliers to form a loop.

Step #3

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

The loop will be off-center, so we need to center it.  Hold the loop in chain nose pliers. Wrap the short wire around the long wire once while pulling out the long wire straight.

Step #4

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Wrap the wire around 2 more times.  You can use bent nose pliers to help you wrap.  Make sure that you’re wraps are close together and neat.

Step #5

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Trim off the excess wire making a flush cut.

Step #6

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Use chain nose pliers to make sure the wire is not poking out.

Step #7

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Slide your beads onto the wire.

Step #8

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Hold the wire in round nose pliers about 1/4 inch above the beads.

Step #9

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Now we’ll make a wire wrapped loop on this side just like we did at the beginning.

Wrap the wire around the round nose pliers to form a loop.

Step #10

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Hold the loop in chain nose pliers. Wrap the wire around 1 time while pulling the beads out straight to straighten the loop.

Step #11

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Make 2 more wraps keeping your wraps straight and neat.

Step #12

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Trim off the excess wire making a flush cut.

Step #13

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Use chain nose pliers to make sure the end is not poking out.

Step #14

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Repeat for all 3 strands with your different sets of beads.

Step #15

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Figure out how long you need your chain to be.  Measure your ankle and then measure the bead link and clasp.  Subtract the length of the bead link and clasp from the total length you need and that’s how long your chain needs to be.

You will need to do this for each bead link unless you’ve made each bead link exactly the same length.

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Keep each chain with the corresponding bead link so you don’t mix them up.

Step #16

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Cut the chain in half. Attach one half of the chain to each end of the bead link.

Step #17

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Repeat for each strand.

Step #18

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Attach one end of all of the chains to a jump ring and place the clasp on it as well.

Step #19

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

On the other end place all the chains in a jump ring and then add a couple of additional jump rings.

ECT TV Episode 69: Bead and Chain Anklet

Customize this anklet:

  • Use any beads you like – mix them up like I did or use just one type of bead.
  • You can mix up the beads in the individual strands as well.
  • Make just 1 strand.
  • Use just 1 bead per strand or make the wire wrapped bead links longer.  If you make them longer you may need to curve the wire to fit with the curve of your ankle.

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings Tutorial

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Today I have a new episode of Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV (ECT TV)!

In this episode of Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV, learn how to make Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings.

You’ll learn:

  • How to make a bead dangle (a/k/a a wire wrapped loop on a headpin with a bead),
  • How to open and close jump rings and
  • How to put it together to make a beautiful pair of earrings.

Here’s today’s video episode:

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Step-by-Step Photo Instructions:

These are the step-by-step photo instructions of the same tutorials that’s in the video.

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Materials and Tools:

  • Gemstone chip beads (You’ll need about 16, depending on long you want to make your earrings) I used Amazonite Chip Gemstone Beads
  • Headpins – 1 for each bead (use pre-made from the store or learn how to make spiral and knotted headpins here)
  • Jump rings – any size will work, 1 for each bead (I used 7mm)
  • Earring Wires (learn how to make your own earring wires here)
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Bent nose pliers

For a quick tip to make all of your wire wrapped loops uniform for this project, click here.

Step #1

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

First we will make a bunch of bead dangles.  I used 8 bead dangles on each earring for a total of 16.  You may want to adjust the number of bead dangles to make your earrings longer or shorter.

First slide a bead onto a headpin.

Step #2

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Hold the headpin in round nose pliers about 1/4″ above the bead.  Line up the wire vertically with the mark you make on your round nose pliers to make your loops uniform.  (See quick tip here for more about that.)

Note:  these beads are different shapes and sizes and this can be kind of awkward.  Just do your best.

Step #3

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Wrap the headpin around the round nose pliers to form a loop.

Step #4

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

The loop will not be centered on the top of the bead, so we’ll fix that now.

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Hold the loop in chain nose pliers. Wrap the wire around once and while doing that pull the bead out straight.

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Step #5

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Wrap around 2 more times.

Step #6

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Trim off the excess wire making a flush cut. (Use the back of most wire cutters toward what you’re cutting to make a nice straight cut.)

Step #7

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Use your chain nose pliers to make sure the end isn’t poking out.  (Tucking in the wire tip.)

Step #8

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Repeat to make 16 bead dangles.

Step #9

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Open up 16 jump rings.  You’ll need 8 for each earring.

For how to open a jump ring, click here for a quick video or see the episode video above.

Step #10

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

If you have any gemstone chip bead dangles that are larger than the rest, start with that one.  Place the bead dangle on a jump ring and close it.

Step #11

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Place the jump ring you just closed into an open jump ring.

Step #12

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Add a bead dangle to that jump ring and close it.

Step #13

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Continue the process of adding an open jump ring and a bead dangle to the last jump ring you closed until you add all 8 bead dangles.

For the last one, allow the bead to go to the side and use that jump ring to attach to the earring wire.

Hints:  As you’re adding bead dangles take note of which side they fall on.  You could end up with all of the bead dangles on one side if you’re not careful.  Just make sure to check before adding the next jump ring.

I like to use a headpin or a piece of wire to hold the last jump ring because otherwise it can get confusing.

Step #14

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Open an earring wire.  It’s similar to opening a jump ring.

Step #15

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Add the last jump ring to the loop in the earring wire and close the earring wire.

Step #16

ECT TV Episode 68: Gemstone Chip Bunch Earrings

Repeat all the steps for the second earring!

ECT TV Episode 67: Spiral Wire Pendant

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Welcome to Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV (ECT TV)!  In today’s episode, I’ll teach you how to make this pretty spiral pendant!

Here’s the video:

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Step-by-Step Photo Instructions:

This is the same tutorial that’s in the video, but in step-by-step photos.

Tools and Materials:

  • Big chunky focal bead that is side drilled (works better if it’s at least somewhat flat)
  • 20 gauge half-hard wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers

Step #1

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Cut about 10 inches of wire.  You may need to adjust the length depending on the size of your bead.  Mine is about 1 inch across.

Step #2

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Slide the bead on and center it on the wire.

Step #3

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Cross the wires across the top keeping them tight against the bead.

Step #4

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Twist the wire in the middle of the bead.  I think the trickiest part is twisting in the middle.

I twisted the wire twice.  Make sure to keep the wire tight against the bead.

Step #5

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

We’ll work with one wire at a time, so I like to pull one up straight and the other off to the side.

Step #6

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Hold the wire in round nose pliers about 1/4 inch above the twist.

Step #7

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Wrap the wire around the pliers and in between the pliers and the twist forming a loop.

Step #8

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

The loop you just made will be off center, so we’ll straighten it now.

Hold the loop in chain nose pliers.  Wrap the wire around once while pulling the bead out straight.

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Step #9

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Wrap the wire around 2 more times.

Step #10

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Leave any extra wire for now.

Step #11

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Now we’ll work with the other wire that was just waiting off to the side.

Pull it straight down the bead.

Step #12

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Make a flush cut on the end of the wire.  (On most wire cutters just use the back of the wire cutters toward what you’re cutting.)

Step #13

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Form a loop.

Hold the wire in round nose pliers so that the wire is at the top of the pliers but not poking through the top.  (You can run your finger over to check.)

Twist the wrist that is holding the round nose pliers away from you while using your other hand to wrap the wire around the pliers.

Go as far as your wrist will allow then readjust your round nose pliers in the wire and complete the loop.  It will look like a “P”.

Step #14

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Hold the loop in chain nose pliers.

Step #15

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Push the wire up.

Step #16

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Readjust the loop in the chain nose pliers so it’s off to the side again and repeat step #15.  Continue to do this spiraling around until the spiral is where you would like it to be on the bead.

I went a little more than halfway up the bead.

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Step #17

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Use your chain nose pliers to bend back the wire so the spiral is straight.

Step #18

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Push the spiral against the bead so it’s flat.

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Step #19

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Now, with the other wire (the one that formed the wire wrapped loop at the top of the bead), you could just trim it and be done, but I decided to make a spiral at the top, too.

Trim the wire to about an inch (or longer if you want a larger spiral.)

Step #20

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Follow Step #13 above to form a loop.

Step #21

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Then follow Steps #14 – #16 to make a spiral.

You’ll have to sort of adjust it when you’re done with your chain nose pliers so it’s in front of the wire wrapped loop.

ECT TV Episode 67: Wire Spiral Pendant

Just add it to a chain or cord and you have a pretty pendant!
