Creating your own ear wires....... simple!

MaryAnn Carroll
Hi, One of the things that is really important to me when creating handmade with handmade is:

1. Use everything that is handmade and/or something that has been modified (like chain).

2. Make sure that everything is smooth. You must sand your copper and your wire or anything else that is sharp!

3. Finish off your handmade earrings with handmade wire.

As for number 3, I have tried to get fancy with that one too many times. It just turned out that getting fancy with the ear wire process is just not my thing. I may try again one day, but for now I keep it simple.

Today, I am sharing my FIRST YouTube tutorial. The lighting isn't the best, but my Videographer (aka husband Bill) did his best to chase my hands around using my i-phone.

Who knows? I might become famous with this and you'll see my name up in lights somewhere! Anything is possible, right?

Thank you for supporting artists who create handmade with handmade.

Thanks! I never thought of using my dremel to grind the ends of the wires
