This is a very simple jewelry design to make if you are researching how to make earrings. This earring project was requested by one of our customers. She wanted to see a demonstration of how to wire wrap a Swarovski Briolette so that she could make earrings out of them. Thanks for the ideas, and keep them coming!

Some of the specific beads and components used may no longer be available, but this is a great technique to learn if you want to work with teardrops or briolettes!

Rating Awesome!
Best video yet on this technique. Can't wait to try it. Only suggestion is your nails were a bit of a distraction!

Rating How to Wire Wrap Briolettes
The three previous reviewers said it best and I second their sentiments! I'm still learning and practicing jewelry making techniques as I watch Karla's videos. I completely agree with what reviewer "Peggy" wrote - Karla does have a way of instilling "confidence" in those of us to "keep trying"!

Rating How to Make Wire Wrapped Briolette Earrings
Karla...you are the best instructor! I haven''''t taken any classes on making jewelry, except from you. I am making earrings by the dozens, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, and selling them. I owe it all to you, you have taught me for over a year, and I love making jewelry! You have helped me to maintain my sanity after I had to retire after a severe back injury. I have gone from being a registered nurse to a jewelry maker! I owe all the thanks to you, ...Linda Smith
