Looking for a fun and easy wire working project? These Bubblegum Earrings are perfect! Using just a few simple wire working techniques, you can create these fun and colorful earrings in no time. Plus, they are a great way to use up any leftover beads or gemstones you may have. So grab your materials and let's get started!
All you need is a little wire and a few beads to make your Bubblegum earrings. Start with a 6” piece of 18 gauge wire. Use round nose pliers to curl the wire in a small loop.
Take the 30 gauge wire and put it over the other wire, wrap it around twice and trim the end. Feed multiple beads onto the wire at a time in your desired pattern. Make a little loop onto the end of the wire to keep the beads from falling off. One at a time you will hold a bead against the base wire and wrap the thin wire around twice.
Once you've wrapped on all your gemstones, wrap the wire around 6 or 7 times and trim it. Create the curvature of your earring. Be careful to make the spirals symmetrical. Cut the wire on a slight angle and file the end so it is not too sharp for your ear!
