Ornate Wire Wrapped Earwires - Wire Wrapping Tutorial 1

This is the first video with many more to come. I teach you step by step how to create the gorgeous earrings you can see in the photo below. You can easily add charms to the earrings to change the look as you can see in the second photo.

In the photo below I made charms and added gold filled jump rings and chain to create this long length dangly design. The charms can easily be changed by slipping them off the end of the earwire, the video shows more examples.

Please be patient while the video loads, it can take a few seconds with slower connections.
