This lesson shows how to develop these beautiful layered droplet earrings. You will learn to shape the wire in a way that makes it easy to create symmetrical earrings. By adding beads of graduating sizes, you can create an ornate design that is very versatile, allowing you to make something that is very dressy or earrings for everyday wear. These earrings measure 1 ½” in length and ¾” at the widest part.

I will also send you my coiled earwires tutorial, incase you want to make your own.
