How to make Wire Wrap Drop Earrings – Knitters and Drummers will love them!

Are you a jewelry maker that just so happens to know some knitters or drummers? Or maybe you are a knitter or drummer yourself. Either way, you will get a kick out of making these wire wrapped dropped earrings because you’ll be using a size 19 knitting needle or drum stick.  Granted, unusual tools for a jewelry maker to use, but they help form the shape that makes these wire frames unique.

To get to the full instructions on how to make these wire wrap earrings, just click on over here. I was recently selected by Craftsy to join their jewelry blogging team and this is my first post for them!  Once a month I will be posting jewelry making tutorials on their jewelry making blog on their very crafty website. Oh, and if you haven’t seen it yet, I also have one of my first sewing patterns for sale on Craftsy as well. Here is the link to the “Memory Lane Tote.”  It’s a large and roomy bag with a interesting fabric texture on the outside.

I’ll still be posting free sewing patterns, home DIY projects and other jewelry making projects here on my blog.  But I was just so honored to join the Craftsy team, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity!

Tierra Cast is the manufacturer of the feather charms.  They are are pretty easy to find on the internet, along with the faux turquoise beads I used.  If you’ve done wire wrapping before, these should be pretty simple.  If you’ve never made jewelry before, these wire wrap earrings might be a bit of a challenge, but hey, give them a try anyway!
