I made this pair of ear wraps from solid sterling silver. These unique ear ornaments wrap around the back of the ear so no piercing is necessary; yet they are very comfortable and they stay on great.I fabricate the ear piece from 14 gauge sterling silver wire so it is very sturdy but still flexible enough to be formed to fit any size ear. I use a strong but delicate looking sterling silver rope chain to attach the sterling silver beads and leaf stampings. Ear wraps are a wonderful alternative for those without pierced ears but they also look great when worn with post earrings. I make the ear wraps in matched pairs. The ear wrap shown in the photo is my own; the pair for sell is a duplicate.
