Instructables
Picture of God's Eye Earrings
I like to take normal-sized things, shrink them, and attach them to my ears. The other day I was teaching someone how to make God's Eyes and decided to try out how they would look done in wire. No soldering or glue needed.

If you've never made a God's Eye with popsicle sticks and yarn, you may want to practice on that scale before trying with the smaller wire.

Step 1: Materials and tools

Materials:
* 20 gauge wire
* thinner wire in two colors (I think I used 28 or 26 gauge, but the label's been lost, so I'm not sure)
* earring hooks or posts (I used posts, mainly because my ears prefer them, either one would work)

Tools:
* wire cutters
* needle nose and/or round nose pliers (whichever you work with best)
* hammer and anvil
* ruler
* metal file (not pictured)

Step 2: Prepare the cross-pieces

Cut two pieces of the thicker wire, each about one inch long.

Hammer one flat along the whole piece.
Hammer the other flat along most of the piece, leaving about 1/8-1/4 inch at one end unhammered. You may need to use the pliers to hold the unhammered part.

I intentionally left the flattened wires unpolished for a more rustic look. If you want, before you go forward you can smooth and polish the pieces. Just make sure to leave the unhammered part round.
