So when, a couple of years ago, someone posted a message to one of the forums I'm on asking if there was a pattern for clip-ons, I thought "What a great idea!". I got out an old pair of my mom's clip-ons and studied them to figure out a way to make a pair in wire. And now, here they are - Clip-on Earrings!
This tutorial includes two variations: Variation 1 makes a basic spiral, with a loop for adding a dangle. Variation 2 forms a base on which you can add your own embellishment, so if you have a favourite bead, or button, you can add it. Variation 2 also has a loop for adding a dangle. I made a quick sample pair using Variation 2, which you can see in the second last photo. The earrings are held on by pressure (see last image) and are very comfortable to wear. Customizing is easy!
Imagine being able to tell your non-pierced clients that, yes, they CAN wear your earrings!
