These earrings and matching bracelet were created using the step by step instructions on page 92 of Beautiful Wire Jewelry for Beaders: Creative Wirework Projects for all Levels (#62-879 ) by Irina Miech.
Create four “S” shaped pieces using bail-making pliers and 18-gauge wire.
File the ends smooth with a file and cup bur.
Hammer the components flat.
Before attaching the crystals, the bronze knots were tumbled for 3 hours to clean, shine and remove rough edges.
Use 20-gauge wire to make the ear wires and wrapped loop head pins for the crystals.
