Swirly Earrings

I made some swirly earrings today.  They were super simple and only took a few minutes to make! 

What you'll need:
  • 2 pieces each of 4 inches of 20 gauge silver wire
  • 2 earring hooks
  • round nose pliers
  • jewelry hammer
  • metal block
 1)  Bend one of your wires in half.
2)  With your pliers create a loop on one end and slightly bend the wire.
3)  Slide the earring hook onto the wire.
4)  Now create a loop with the other end of the wire, like in the picture below.
5)  Put your earring on your metal jewelry block and hammer the curves with your jewelry hammer.  The first picture at the top of this post shows one before it's been hammered and one after.
6) Finish with the other earring, put them in and you're done!

And now for some exciting news.  Eye Spy DIY was featured over at Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom!  Go take a look and check out all her amazing projects and great linky party!  Thank you so much Suzy!  You are amazing!
