Half Moon Earrings
The inspiration for these Half Moon Earrings came from Pinterest while I was looking at wire jewellery ideas. Wish I could remember who shared it, but the idea stuck in my head. I bought the silver wire from a local jewelery supply shop and already had pliers and fine grid sand paper. All you need do is decide how big you want to make them. Too big and they drag or bump on your shirt collar and can pop out your ear.
You need: –
- silver wire
- pliers x 2 flat and round
- fine grit sandpaper
You do: –
I cut 2 x10 centimetre lengths of silver wire with a pair of pliers. Then sanded the ends so they were smooth. (When I did jewelry making we were taught to tape our sand paper around a piece of wood. Makes it easier to work with. You can see that in the picture above.)
At around 4 centimtres I made a sharp bend to shape the top of the earring with round pliers. Then using the rubber handles of my pliers I shaped the curved moon part of the earrings. Simple as that and you have a pair of Half Moon Earrings.
I’ve gotten heaps of ideas from Pinterest so I can make loads more wire jewellery. Look out for those in upcoming posts.
Have a great week.
