 1. I'd like to give you some tips for making Copper Dangle Earrings. You will need copper wire - 20 gauge(0.8mm), you can also use a thiner wire - 22 gauge (0.6), but not less than 22 ga! If you use too thin wire, ear wires won't be enough  tough and won't stay at the right form!

2. To make these French style ear wires I used copper wire, 20 gauge. Pay attention: the end of the ear wires is hammered and polished. You should do it not to hurt your ears while putting the earrings on and for a beautiful look. You can see the result at the picture. If you want to buy ready ear wires, see the following link - Hammered Copper Ear Wires Earrings findings

3. I created  flower bead caps for the design of dangle earrings! These gorgeous flower caps (12mm in diameter) were covered with high quality enamel! Pay attention: it's not a simple paint, it's a special enamel color! If you haven't such a type of caps, you can order ready flower bead caps in different colors, see the link - Enameled Flower Bead Caps Sets

4. This is one more type of small filigree flower bead caps, which also have been enameled by me! At the Earrings tutorial photo you can see the natural color of the caps. You can make the earrings very lovely using colored supplies for earrings creation. To purchase the tiny flower bead caps see the link below - Assorted color Filigree Flower Bead Caps

5. To make such spiral head pins you will need copper wire - 22 gauge(0.6mm), pliers and a hammer! Cut the right length (in the case - approx. 2 inch (5cm), twist the end carefully to get 2-3 spiral convolutions. Then it's important to hammer them, so that they could get the right look! You can see how it looks at the photo! You can also choose and buy ready ones in different colors, see the following link - Copper Swirl Head Pins.
