I really like this type of earwire for it's simplicity and versatility. You can just put any stone on a length of chain on the earwire for a quick, easy pair of earrings. And the earwire doesn't take away from the design. Or for a little extra sparkle add a small bicone on the earwire. I use them for a lot of my designs!
These are the only type of earwires I use anymore- they let whatever you add to them be the most stand out part of the earring. And I love that they come in so many finishes. They are well made too.
Antique brass-plated Earwire
I buy vintage beads and findings and these were a perfect match to a pair of pendants I wanted to wear as earrings. The color was a perfect match and the fact that they are simple just makes the pendant more of the focal point. I love them. I will buy more as I need them. They are easy to manipulate so the pendant went on easy. Good size and shape.
NOT hypo-allergenic for me!
These are simple & lovely looking earwires at a reasonable price and the perfect antique brass color and gauge for me! Used them to make earrings for myself and my ears became very irritated, burned and stung. It took me 3 days of treating with peroxide to cure and I normally have NO problem at all! Will try and paint them with clear nail polish as Artbeads has no other alternative in this style & color and they are perfect with the Kabela Design Antique Brass 2 Layer Filigree Flower with Center Crystal Link. Love Artbeads, but not these earwires.
