Rough Around The Edges Hoop Earrings Tutorial

A drawplate is excellent for hardening soft wire without making it brittle, so custom ear wires and handmade hoops are springy and keep their shape.... The most popular size of wire for ear wires in the United States is approximately 21-gauge. So why use 18-gauge wire and a drawplate, instead of just using 21-gauge wire?

Pulling wire through a drawplate makes the wire springy, so it can flex side to side as needed when putting earrings into your ear, and then it springs back into place.
