The Mid-Century Modern of Christmas Earrings
The perfect accessory for your Ugly Sweater contest and any other holiday event that doesn't take itself too seriously.
These may be a little challenging for a beginning wireworker, because its a little tricky to work around the antler tines. Keep your nylon pliers handy because its easy to bend an antler while wire wrapping the loop.
Cute and fairly easy to make
by Susan -
The tricky part comes when making the wire-wrapped loop in between the antlers! Just be sure to leave enough space between the bend for the loop and the bead cap, and hold the loop with the tip of your pliers so you can make the wrap without getting tangled in the antlers.
Cute but not for beginners
These are adorable and will sell quickly
However, making the loops with the antlers in the way took more time than I hoped!
BTW Fusion Beads sent a free gift with the order
Very cute holiday earrings - and an idea for the wire wrap
My fix for the difficult wire wrap location was to thread three tiny clear seed beads on top of the antler cap, and then it was a snap to complete the wire wrap above the fragile antlers. The seed beads blended right in with the final design and were not noticeable. Hope this idea helps someone else!
An update to my previous review
I've probably made 20 pairs of these now, and find that far and away the easiest way to do it is to hold the loop with flat-nose pliers (Tool Magic or similar might be helpful here) pointed towards the crystal bicone head and nose. The antlers are just wide enough to rotate around the tip of the flat nose pliers.
These are the cutest things for Christmas!!!!
I made these for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. She LOVED them. It was a little tricky to wrap the wire. It would have been good to have thinner tipped chain nose pliers, but I managed. I have enough materials to make the gold ones. I plan to make those soon.
