Lustrous pearls and stunning silver stand out when paired with rose gold accents. These dangling earrings will allow you to try out your coiling skills while creating magnificent jewelry. Their neutral shine will work with any color palette! Learn how to make these earrings and you'll see how wire can become as much of a colorful accent as beads. See more of these earrings in our Wire-Wrapped Earrings Video.
