Free Jewelry Making Design:
Our new jewelry making project for this newsletter is a new earring design that we call 5 Dangles Jewelry Wire Earrings. This project is made of five wire components made on any of our WigJig tools. It is an intermediate jewelry making project and our instructions aren't provided in sufficient detail that a beginner would need. These chandelier earrings are slightly over 3 inches long when completed.
These earrings use 32 inches of 20 gauge wire, one pair of ear wire findings, 10 figure 8 connectors or jump rings, 10 six mm beads, and 10 head pin findings.
Please select either picture at right, or select here to view our new instructions for making the 5 Dangles Jewelry Wire Earrings made on our WigJig jewelry tools.
Past Jewelry Making Techniques:
We maintain a techniques web page that provides links to the discussion of techniques in our prior newsletters. You can visit this web page here. Follow the links on that page to the discussion of the technique in that newsletter.
Current Jewelry Making Technique:
This newsletter's jewelry making technique is free instructions for making a shepherd's hook, or French hook style ear wire using a Super Peg and one of our WigJig tools. We tend to make most of the ear wires used in our jewelry making projects. Part of the reason that we make our own ear wires is that we don't always plan sufficiently in advance to have ear wires available. Part of the reason is we like to make our own ear wires. We do believe that we save a small amount of money by making our own ear wires.

Nostalgia Corner -- Some of our favorite jewelry making designs:
Our Nostalgia Corner project for this newsletter is our favorite ring design. The Simple Ring is a design that we think looks great and is as the name implies relatively easy to make.
