How to make an ear cuff for unpierced ears, or just to add a little extra bling ;)
Gather all necessary supplies.
Cut a piece of wire about 4-6 inches long...
Bend your wire into a zig zag pattern emulating the one in picture 4. I use flat nosed pliers to make the shape :)
Using needle nose pliers, bend the top piece, and bottom piece of wire, and make some nice, neat loops.
I chose to live on the edge and be a little funky by making the top piece into a swirl! Go me!!
Now using a ring mandrel, dowel, or anything circular (a pen! a lipstick!) Bend your wire around it to make round.
Your finished product should look this.
Next, cut a new piece of wire. As long as your little heart desires!
Start threading some pretty beads, charms, etc..onto it.
Making another loop with your needle nose pliers, attach the beaded wire to your cuff.
Wrap the cuff around your ear, it should fit snugly, and HUZZAH!! You are now sporting a rockin piece of bling bling for your ear!
