What gauge and hardness wire(s) did you use for these pink swarovski earrings?

ansleybleu (author)Stacyhoff2011-09-20

Hi. I always use dead soft wire. I believe the base was 20 gauge and the wrap wire was 26 or 28 gauge.

Love the graduated pink swarovski dangle earrings!!!
<very sweet!!!>


They are swarovskis? I dint know that!

ansleybleu (author)crazybot_992011-04-01

Yes, they are Swarovski's, but the Czech also manufacture crystal bi-cone shaped beads too. The quality of the Czech beads is nearly the same as Swarovski.

Well, they certainly look like it, the cut & refraction is very clean...
If not Swarkies, then certainly high quality Czech I'd imagine.
(although, one posted has a point, this is an "Instructables" site, not a "buy my stuff" site...)

Here in India, I trade gems of these sort with my school friends... we have something called a gem trade.. I just wanted to know wether I am trading Swarkies with my frends, thats all!

Maybe I missed it somewhere, but I didn't see any instructions for this instructable. ???

Way to go! I also make jewelry and can appreciate the effort. Doesn't fimo make you feel guilty because it's too easy?

nagutron (author)2008-02-19

Yeah, I think these are beautiful, too. Handmade crafts have their own charm even when they're a little unfinished, but yours look professionally designed and constructed. I hope we someday get to see some detailed Instructables so we can make our own :)
