WireWork Earrings

I got this custom order to make just wire worked jewelry, with no embellishments... I was asked to use only wire.

So I was just trying out different things and it struck me, that coils, when twisted and shaped, would look give a new dimension to the technique.

Anyway , I had this metal file that had three sides, so if I decided to make my coils on that instead of a regular cylindrical shape, just to make it yet more different.

I used 20 gauge copper wire to make the coils. Then I tapered one end to which I was going to add handmade ear hooks.

But as I was about to loop the end, it just seemed to have enough left over to shape ear hooks, with the same wire , without cutting!! I just tried to see how it looked, and it looked great ! I also twisted it a bit to mimic a fluid look..

Here they are ..hand coiled, copper wire earrings from a single piece of wire.!
