This is a simple tutorial on my way make a earring hook by wire.
Artistic Wire 20 Ga
Tools needed:
Round nose
Chain Nose
Nylon Jaws Pliers
Optional tools:
Wire Rounder
Chase Hammer
Metal Block
1. Straighten the wire by Nylon Jaws Pliers 2. Make a loop by round nose
3. left approx. 5cm to make the hook (the length depand on the size of your hook)
4. We need 2 to form a pair of hook
5. Put 2 wires together and form hook by a pen (or any round shape object).
(Note: i'll always make 2 together, in order to have same size, same shape's pair)
6. Round the wire like this
7. Slightly bend the wire at suitable spot
8. Cut the excess wire... tata... earring hook done
Optional steps:
to prevent your pretty face and skin being scracth by the wire (my main purpose), you may use wire rounder to de-bur the sharp end of wire.
flatten the wire by chase hammer and mental block to add some little pattern.
now we have a pretty earring hook~~~

Clip On Earring

I've got this pattern and technique from a book. A clip on earring made by cooper wire, which is suitable to those who have no earring hole or with sensitive skin.
这个款式和技巧是从书上学来的。用铜线拗成的夹式耳环,非常适合没有耳洞或容易敏感的人。Side view. techniques to make these 2 pairs of earring is quite different due to the shape of beads, which the back of pearls are round, whereas the back of rose beads are flat.
I'll wearing this earring for whole day long to test for its durability, stay tuned for the result.
佩戴夹式耳环其实很怕会掉,所以今天我会一整天戴着,以测试它的耐度, 敬请期待下回分解。
