This tutorial will teach you how to make sturdy little rosebud, cinnamon roll or maybe yarn ball looking ear posts, from 5-6” (each) 20GA round wire. I recommend you use absolutely dead soft sterling silver or goldfilled wire for allergy reasons. Also, to get sturdy rosebuds, they need to be absolutely snugly wrapped, or they will give with use.

I use very fine tipped round nose pliers for this design. It is absolutely necessary for the look and for the amount of wire I have specified, and to make the rosebuds sturdy. If you don't have very fine tipped round nose pliers you kan buy some inexpensive blunt ones, and modify them to become fine.

The price only includes the detailed instructions to make the earposts, not the materials or the tools. The PDF file of 16 pages and 27 closeup color photos will be available for instant download from Etsy. If you want it sent to another e-mail adress, please let me know via convo or note to seller.

You are welcome to contact me with any questions! Theresa
