TUTORIAL 004: Enceinte Melody Earrings

In this tutorial, you will learn how to make a stylish and versatile pair of earrings. Choose to add some tiny metal beads and your earrings will have a more lacy or frilly look. Take the design further and team these earrings up with a pendant based on the same design, and you have a beautiful, expensive looking pendant and earring set.

This tutorial covers how to coil, how to make nice even loops, how to make your own ear wires and also how to make sure your earrings are a perfect mirror image of each other.

These earrings are solid in construction and are a lovely size and weight, without being heavy. They have an expensive look about them and will certainly demand attention when worn.
