Making Interchangeable Ear Wires Jewelry Making Project

Interchangeable Ear Wire Earrings jewelry making design

Free instructions in how to make our Interchangeable Ear Wires earrings using soft jewelry wire and our WigJig Spiral Maker and any WigJig jewelry tool:

These earrings are called Interchangeable for the simple reason that the design of this ear wire allows the beads to be changed.  By making several bead dangles with different combinations of beads, you can completely change the look of this ear wire by changing only the bead dangle.

You can find more information on how to make interchangeable ear wires out of jewelry wire by selecting here.  We have several alternative designs for this jewelry making project.  The one we prefer is the "Stays On Alternative Design" shown on this web page.  We prefer this jewelry making design because as the name implies, it stays on better than the other designs on this page.  If you use larger and heavier beads, the weight of the beads will help keep any of the earring designs shown on this page on the wearer.  With smaller or lighter beads, the stays on alternative design is recommended.
