Easy Summer Projects

Today I ran across a great video that I wanted to share on how to make a Figure Eight Wire Component by Sherrie Lingerfelt. I also thought you’d enjoy this quick Yin Yang Earring Pattern by Mary Bailey which uses a similar Figure Eight Component.

Yin Yang Earrings by Mary Bailey

Yin Yang Earrings

  • Using either 18-gauge or 20-gauge wire (depending on the desired length) for each earring, straighten, measure and then cut a piece 2 – 3″ in length.
  • Make a loop on each end at opposite sides with round nose pliers
  • Flatten/harden with a chasing hammer on a bench block if desired
  • Add a headpin, charm or two, and ear wires
  • Note: This is a great way to use scrap wire!

Check out all of the great wire we have in stock that’s for any Summer project you have in mind!
