Step 1: Materials
You will need:
1. Thin wire
2. Cutting Pliers
3. Round-tip Pliers
4. Flat-tip Pliers
Step 2: The Simple Ear Cuff
This is the basic shap that will hold the ear cuff to your ear. The other two ear cuffs are also based on this shape.
Step 3: Rounding Off the Tip
Start to make the basic ear cuff by rounding off the tip so that the ear cuff will not sting your ear. To do this wrap the end of the wire around the tip of the round-tip pliers.
Step 4: Make Tree Loops Into the Wire
Use the round tip pliers to create three bends in the wire and then trim off the accsses. Finish by rounding off the remaining edge.
Step 5: Round the Ear Cuff
Use the Round tip pliers to give the ear cuff a Rounded shape. After this spet it should be able to cling to your ear.
Step 6: Extended Ear Cuff
This is an ear cuff that curves around your ear and has a little spiral added to it. This is the basic ear cuff with an extension at the end.
Step 7: Adjust the Ear Cuff to Your Ear
You can start by curving the ear cuff into a round shape like you did with the simple earcuff before. You should now have the basic earcuff shape with a long peice of wire at the end. Then you can hold the ear cuff to your ear and curve the extra piece along your ear. This should look slightly simalar to the pictures above, however the shape is slightly diffrent for every ear. After this step you should be able to wear the earcuff.
Step 8: The Spiral Ear Cuff
This earcuff is also based on the basic ear cuff, however it has spirals added to each side.
Step 9: Create the Basic Ear Cuff Shape
Start by making two bend in the middle of the wire to make the basic ear cuff shape. Make sure that there are long pieces of wire sticking out on either end. The longer the pieces are, the larger the spirals will be in the end. Mke sure both accsses pieces are the same length if you want the spirals the same size.
Step 10: Create the Spirals
Roll both ends entierly into spirals using the round and flat tip pliers.
Step 11: Round the Ear Cuff
To finish this earcuff you have to give it a round shape like you did previously so it will hold to your ear.
