Freeform Woven Swirls Ear Cuff Tutorial

This is a quickie tutorial I did last year for, but i forgot to post it here. So, here it is. :)

The only measurements on it are the ones for the cuff portion and the length of 20g wire to start with. I did that because it's supposed to be a freeform ear cuff. This is just a suggested swirl pattern. Really, the only important part is getting the cuff portion correct so it fits. The rest is all up to your imagination.

If you use this tutorial, I do have one request. If you post it online, come back to this page and post a link to your work in the comments so we can all see what you made! Pretty please!

You can find more of my free tutorials on my web-site,…

For those of you who aren't sure how to wear ear cuffs, here are instructions for how to put one on:

Do you generally shape the wire after it's been wrapped, or just before?

I was waiting to go to town and buy wire, so I started making simple ear cuffs out of coloured paper clips. Surprisingly, it actually worked out very well. Nice tutorial, I can't wait to try it out.

I wonder if i can use this in combination with my wire jig? oh i'v got to try that now.
This is lovely, how long did you cut your 28 g wire though? ^^
