Intro: Wire Elf Ear Cuff
Hey everyone it's momo and I've missed you guys so much, I think I'll come in with a bang! This is pretty much a statement article of jewelry. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did. Have fun!
Step 1: Supplies
1- 28 gauge wire.
2- 16 gauge wire (no bigger!!!)
4- round nose pliers
5- wire cutters
6- small beads (not shown)
Step 2: Two Wire Pieces
They don't have to be a specific length, just cut one a LOT smaller than the other.
Step 3: Curl
For this step just simply curl up the end. You can curl it up more if you want to, but you can just leave it like this
Step 4: Outline
Bend the outline of your ear and sculpt it with your fingers so it looks nice
Step 5: Hold On!
Now you need to make the part that 'holds on' to your ear. Bend it back with your round nose like shown above.
Step 6: Another Curl
Cut it off and curl the end to finish it off nice. Slide it onto your ear and clamp down. You can just leave it like this or you can continue.
Step 7: Separate Piece
Remember the piece we put aside earlier? Well you going to curl each end and make sure it's not to long by putting it up against the base
Step 8: Wrap Around
take your 28 gauge wire and wrap starting from the bottom
Step 9: Beads and Attachment
You want to line up the separate piece with the base and wrap. After 5-7 wraps, string a bead. Wrap one more time, string a bead. Wrap another time, string a bead the next. You want to wrap it once in between each bead because it keeps them sturdier
Step 10: Try It on and Fit
You've got to put it on your ear and make sure it's going along the outline of your ear. No more, no less. Just make sure it looks nice on and change anything you might need to
Step 11: Finish!
And that's all there is to it! I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial and if you haven't already subscribe and become a part of the farm family and give a cow it's wings. Love y'all •_£
