Hammered Ear Wires

Mar 10, 2020 | Beading Study Group

In March’s class, Amy Johnson will be teaching you how to make several different types of hammered ear wires, which will allow you to customize your earrings and save a lot of money in the process! You will be surprised at how easy the process is, and how little work and materials it involves. We’d love to have you join us! The class is free for SCTA members, and $5 for non-members.

Materials list:

Sketch pad & pencil for sketching designs
String (12” is plenty)
18-gauge wire (preferably half-hard)
Steel bench block and chasing hammer
Wire cutters (preferably flush cut)
Cup burr, fine file or sandpaper (for rounding the ends of the wire)
