DIY: Wire Wrapped Earrings

DIY , Fashion , Jewelry

If you love handmade jewelry this is the blog post for you! We're breaking down the steps of how to make wire wrapped earrings with a bauble in the center

You'll Need:

-Two earrings rounds


-Two jade beads

-Wrapping wire

-Wire cutters

Start by looping the wire (about a forearms length worth) around the base of the earring round.


Pull the wire so it is sticking straight up in the air


String a pearl on the wire and wrap it twice around the earring round


Continue this until you have made it all the way around the earring round. Wrap your excess wire around the earring hook to secure the beads in place. Make sure to pull the beads tight to the round so they don't shift during use.


To add a bead to the center of the earring you should string wire through the bottom of your bead and loop it through the hook dangling from the base of the earring round


Repeat the process and you will have a pair of handmade earrings!


Don't they just look fabulous on!

We are looking forward to Maureen Meyer leading us in a paint class at the studio Thursday, August 9th.  Check out what the brain-child be hind wedding invitation company Rosenbrook Meyer and blogger has to say about Fall Color Trends below (and while you're at it, check her fantastic blog:
Being a mom has made me much slower on the uptake regarding certain things that I used to be all over. …For instance, the news, fashion, music etc. Ok maybe I wasn't always on it, but I like to indulge myself with thoughts like, "I used to be really on top of this kind of thing, but now… you know, with kids and all… "
One great example is the color forcast. In advance of each season, Pantone (hot link: reports a palette of color swatches that will influence apparel, beauty (makeup) and accessories. These hues are selected based on any number of factors, including what is inspiring designers that season to current events. While they can be related to the season (warm, rich tones for fall), these colors are not limited to those those characteristics; in fact, there are always a number of unexpected, interesting accent (or "pop") colors, which enhance the deeper, more neutral base colors.
So while the Fall 2012 report came out in February, I am just now getting around to checking it out. It's nice. Some of the tones are a bit bright for fall in my own personal opinion, but hey! That's what makes fashion so cool and individual.
Here is a cross-section of looks by various designers, showing how each was influenced by one or a combination of colors from the F2012 palette. Obviously, these are runway looks, but it's great to see and consider for your own fall shopping and accessorizing, in Greenville or elsewhere! Perhaps you might be inspired by some of these colors and the interesting ways that you might tie them into your own "look" this fall. Enjoy!
