Wirework & Gold Earring Beading Ideas
Showing all made usingand
This earring is made of gold tone nontarnishable wire. I started by shaping the wire in a teardrop shape to make petals. I made four petals overlapping each other, creating a flower shape. Then I attached a green stone teardrop to each flower and a gold hook at the top to finish the earrings. Love […]
I love working with wire, so in this piece I focused mainly on giving wire a different and modern shape. To make the pendants, I used gold tone wire and combined it with a 12 mm black glass bead. I strung one on an 18 inch gold plated ball chain for the necklace, and attached […]
Fall is so full of wonderful rich colors. And as you know I love leaves! So this is my way of capturing those colors in this fall inspired pair of earrings. The leaf charms are antiqued gold color with freshwater pearls in various sizes and rich autumn colors. They dangle from a gold petite chain […]
I wanted to make a pair of earrings that colorful and flirty. I used the Venetian square beads as the guide and created my design from there. The earrings were made using Gold-filled chains and genuine faceted teardrop peridot and citrine gemstones. The earhooks and heart designs are 14K gold.
To make these earrings I placed three mother of pearl beads in complimentary colors on gold-tone brass wire and formed a loop. I then fed the wire through the orange lace lentil beads. I wire wrapped one wire around the base of the second wire and formed a loop out of the other wire. In […]
I designed these simple earrings so they would represent the international color for breast cancer awareness and also coordinate with other “pink” pieces I created to support the Young Survival Coalition. I stacked light pink Swavorski cube crystals accented with brass heishi beads and hot pink fire polished crystals onto gold-plated head pins and dangled […]
These earrings are made up of bright orange carnelian rondelles, wire wrapped to a thin chain, with chunky, faceted lemon yellow chalcedony briolettes wrapped at the bottom. All the metal used in these earrings is gold filled and they hang about one and a half inches long from the bottom of the earwires.
These earrings are very simple in both style and construction. First I hand wire wrapped gold vermiel wire around medium sized light salmon faceted Chinese crystal briolette beads. Then I attached them to pendants that depicts a hummingbird receiving it’s daily nourishment; nectar from a beautiful flower. I knew that the frames needed to stand […]
Yes, I know… the 60’s are over. But some might say that the era represented not just a time but a mindset… and couldn’t we use a little 60’s mindset right now? I know *I* could. I bought these little stamped brass flower charms awhile ago and the first incarnation featured small blackstone rondelles. This […]
Carnelian is a beautiful stone! It goes perfectly with copper. Beneath a copper metal connector I hung a gold glass cube, a copper cube, a faceted fire polished amber colored bead and a polished oval carnelian. The colors complement each other beautifully. The beads are strong on decorative headpins and the earrings hang from sterling […]
I wanted to use golden ear wires, but chunky ones rather than the traditional thin gold ones, so I decided to use solid brass. I took thick brass wire and hand formed it into the ear wires, hammered them first flat and then with a specialist hammer to create the texture. I then added small […]
These are soooo glamorous, a lightweight but eye catching long pair of earrings, great for a special ball or gala occasion. The hoop earwires and heart shaped chandelier hangers are shaped and hammered from wire. At the top hangs a chrysophase mini nugget, next swing the gold heart shapes from fine chain. Under the hearts […]
I wanted to attempt something sculptural with these triangle shaped green aventurine beads. They are polished, but have a matte finish; so I used contrasting shiny 16k gold plated textured disks and 8mm carnelian beads to add color. I like the mix of the different shapes. It’s a bold unique design.
This labradorite and faceted peridot chandelier earrings was inpsired by my love for the tropical foliage of my childhood city where I grew up in Vietnam. The mystical hues of the labradorites are enhanced by the rich golden 14K gold-filled beads and findings. The kidney earwires are 18K gold. The center beads are faceted Peridot […]
I made my Aloha Sunset Earrings with little round pink coral gemstones that I brought back from a summer trip I took to the Hawaiian islands with my husband for our 32nd wedding anniversary. I hand wrapped them with 14kt gold filled headpins and clustered them together on 14kt gold filled chain and 14kt gold […]
I bought these lovely smoky-sparkly golden crystals awhile ago and was at a loss as to what to do with them. Finally deciding not to overthink it, I added oxidized sterling silver findings and oxidized, stylized, sterling silver handcrafted earwires to them and I loved the way they turned out. Sometimes simple is best!
