Using Pattern Wire for Earrings

Here's a reasonable way to create one of a kind earrings, with Sterling Silver. Buy premilled pattern wire, and cut it to straight lengths of 1 inch. Round the ends using a nail file or emery board, drill the piece, and sand the back with the emery board to soften the harshness of the pattern wire. Add a handcrafted earring wire, and you have a beautiful design.

Simple and elegant.
