This tutorial from PotomacBeads will show you how to coil wire to create these beautiful leaf-shaped earrings. You'll be able to wear these earrings with any outfit, making them the perfect accessory.
    Cut four inches of 20ga wire and four feet of 28ga wire. Wrap and coil the 28ga wire around the 20ga. Keep the coils tight, you can use your fingers to push them together as you go. Keep wrapping until you have three inches coiled.
    Bend the coiled section in the middle to form the bottom of your Willow leaf earrings. Wrap the ends of the wire together at the top and trim the short side. Coil another piece of wire to place in the center of the leaf.
    Create the veins of the leaf by adding beads to pieces of 28ga wire strung across the interior of the earring. Coil the wire at the top of the earring and loop it to add an earwire. Trim the wire ends flush with the pendant.
    Wire working is a great way to add a personal touch to your jewelry. With wire working, you can create earrings that are unique and stylish. Willow Leaf Earrings are a great way to get started in wire working. With a little practice, you can use the skills you learn to design earrings for any occasion.
