TUTORIAL: DIY Earcuff by XxXmelisseXxX TUTORIAL: DIY Earcuff by XxXmelisseXxX
So, I had a couple of people ask, and that's enough- here's a tutorial on how I make my earcuffs. Now, other people might make them differently, but this is how I do mine.

TOOLS & SUPPLIES:

wire (any colour; 24 --> 16 gauge)
wire cutters
round-nosed pliers
flat-nosed pliers (optional)
beads (optional)
other decorative things (optional again)

Thankyouverymuch. Enjoy the tutorial. If I get enough feedback, I'll make more.

Cheers!

I have spent several days trying to find something to tell me what I need to buy and how to get started creating my own ear wraps. I can't wear ear rings and need to create some ear wraps and necklaces to complete my Steampunk costume. Thank you!

I always find that 22/24 gauge is too small to be strong enough to hold up to daily wear or hanging parts. How do you get yours to hold up? Or is that your personal secret? :)

Hello! Nah, usually if you double it around like this and/or wrap it, it holds up well :)

Awesome! I'm going to try this out. it's really nice that earcuffs exist, because I really don't want to get my ears pierced, but it would still be cool to wear some sort of jewelry on my ears. Plus earcuffs are just super awesome looking!

one question, why do we need two loops? (like the heart part?)
Reply
:iconxxxmelissexxx:
XxXmelisseXxX Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2011
The top can be whatever you'd like. You don't need to do anything on the top if you don't want to. Just the two loops that hold the cuff onto your ear are required.Does that make sense? Thanks for asking :3

Woah, this is a great idea! Thanks for taking the time to make this tutorial. You're very good with pliers, btw. Those curves are very skillful and don't look angular at all.

No problem, haha :D I hope it does help. (An absolutely awesome effect is to wrap more pieces of wire onto it... this was my wire-wrapped one... it ended up looking seriously epic.) If you want anything else, just ask/message me, and I'll definitely try to help xD
