Coiling Gizmo Earrings
So what can you do with a length of coiled wire made on the Coiling Gizmo? The teardrop earrings I just found in a magazine.
Karla Schafer, Auntie's Beads Designer
1.Make a coil out of the 22ga wire, using our Coiling Gizmo Instructional Video.
2.Cut two pieces of coiled wire into 2” lengths.
3.Cut two pieces of 20 ga wire, 3” long.
4.Using the tip of the round nose pliers make a loop in one end of the 20ga wire.
5.String on 3mm sterling silver bead on the wire, then the coil and another 3mm sterling silver bead.
6.Take the wire and wrap it into a u shape around a pen.
7.Wrap the end of the wire without a loop around below the loop and trim with the nipper tool.
8.Open an eye pin and place the loop of the coiled teardrop on it and close.
9.Drop a 4mm bicone and wrap a loop, trim the excess wire with the nipper tool.
10.Attach the ear wire to the dangle.
11.Repeat to complete the pair.
