For more interesting wire wrapping tutorials visit my new etsy shop:
Making those earrings doesn't require glue or solder -it's pure wire-wrapping!
The process of making these earrings is presented in 3 easy to follow steps ( making base, making adornment, and wrapping) and illustrated with 37 pictures.
important: The lesson shows how to make the earrings presented on the cover (first picture).
Even more important– I do not show how to oxidize( in fact if you want to oxidize your copper wire, you just have to buy liquid which oxidized silver(I use such one) and put a wire into the liquid for some time(2 -3 minutes).
I've used oxidized copper wire and brass wire to create this earrings, but it can be any other wire–brass, copper, silver or gold-filled.
If you have any questions concerning this tutorial, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
