Earring Tutorial - Pear Filagree
So I accepted my own personal challenge, to see if I could recreate a pair of earrings that grabbed my attention. My design has a slight variation with the shape and I think my wire gauge is smaller. Since I really like them, I decided that I would take pictures of the process, just to document for myself. But then, as before, I thought I would post the tutorial here on my blog, just in case someone else wanted to give them a try.
18 gauge wire
20 gauge wire (because the 18 gauge wouldn't fit through my gemstone beads and I didn't want to drill the holes.)
The indispensable Sharpie and a ruler. And, you guessed it, my favorite ruler was a freebie from years ago. I've been hoping for a 2nd ruler to come in my order, but no such luck.
