These were made using 3" of 18 gauge wire, the 5th round step on the Fiskars mandrel, then loops were formed using the middle of the small round nose pliers, the jump ring was formed at the back of the large round nose pliers and 12 x 8 mm teardrop crystals were attached with a wrapped head pin.
Behind the scenes - It was another beautiful day in the mountains, so I took my wire outside onto the back porch. I often make repeats of a design. It helps to speed production. From wire jeweler to production queen!
Now, after all of that, lets see if those lovely customers will like them as much as I do. If not - I've said this in previous posts - everyone gets earrings for Christmas.
Now, I've got to get back to work. Have a terrific day.
