Wire work is simple once you know a few basics. The wire spiral is great for turning large beads into pendants, or embellishing the base of an earring. You can use this technique for a variety of things in your designs.
Cut a piece of sterling silver wire. For this project, we used a five inch piece of 22-gauge half hard wire. The length you use will depend on how many rings you want in your spiral. You may need to experiment a bit to get your length just right. With round-nose pliers, make a simple loop by wrapping the wire once around the pliers.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
