Wirework & Silver Earring Beading Ideas
Showing all made usingand
In my jewelry pieces I focus mainly on contemporary styles, so in this piece I tried to give it a modern, different look than the traditional earring. This piece was constructed from silver plated 16 gauge wire giving it a random, trendy shape, then attaching a 10mm purple rondelle bead at the end of the […]
To create these earrings I shaped 18 gauge wire into a swirl. Then I hammered the silver to give texture. Then I used a headpin to attach sodalite nugget beads. I attached a closed jump ring to the swirl & used a sterling fishhook earring finding. Sodalite is the stone of endurance.
I wanted to make a pair of fun earrings that would go anywhere…pool or dinner party. I started with the super cute rectangular sterling silver beads and added iridescent faceted black glass beads to the top and bottom. I strung them all together with a piece of Argentine half hard sterling silver wire and attached […]
These drop earrings started with the cute sterling silver bead caps. I paired them with the foiled glass purple beads and thought that looked nice. I did some wire work to attach them all together but they were still lacking something. I looked through my beads and found only two of the delicate faceted purple […]
I love bold jewelry, not necessarily the big diamond bold jewelry, but more so stones and off beat beads. I took a more eco friendly and modern route with these earrings. The Nuts & Berries earrings took about an 1 1/2 hours to make to ensure the smoothness of the steel wire to hold the […]
My “I love you” earrings are inspired by love. A great pair of earrings made of natural coral quartz briolettes, wire wrapped in sterling silver. To make these, first gather two gemstone beads, some sterling silver 20 gauge dead soft wire, and two ear wires. Next, make a loop in the wire and start wrapping […]
I made these earrings using sterling silver findings, chandelier components, and best of all, Swarovski crystals and pearls. I love the shine and sparkle of the crystals. They are just beautiful. I was inspired thinking about a wedding with beautiful pink roses to match the earrings and set everything else off beautifully.
I started this earring by placing a Swarovski 4 mm Siam cube crystal on a head pin. I then placed a 6 mm Swarovski Margarita bead, then 8 mm crystal, then 10 mm crystal, and finished it with a 6mm brown bicone bead to complete the Christmas tree shape. I attached the head pin to […]
Living in the northwest, I see a lot of rain. I wanted to show the positive side of all the rain with these cute little earrings. I used aqua blue briolettes, flowers in Tibetan silver, and fancy earwires. They were very inexpensive to make. They show you can make something beautiful without spending a fortune.
The “chandelier” pieces in this design are actually elaborate bead caps taken from a Christmas tree ornament! I love to use findings in unusual and unexpected ways. When I found these sterling silver bead caps (at least that is what I think they are supposed to be) at a garage sale I picked them up […]
Each of these tiny flowers have been handmade one by one. I began with the dark black colour of polymer clay and added some white to have shades of gray from dark to light. I made some of the flowers with a shimmery polymer clay as well. I assembled the flowers with a silver ball […]

I love these blue agate stones, they are so beautiful and unique! The blue agate measures 12x18mm. They are accented by a clear faceted glass bead on top and a metal flower spacer beneath it. Earrings hang from sterling silver French earwires. They measure about 2″ from top to bottom.
