To make the ear wires cut 2 pieces of 20g wire 2" (5cm) long, flush cut both ends. Wrap the wire around a ½" (12.5mm) mandrel to form a near circle. Make a small loop on one end. With your pliers place them near the middle of the wire, making the end with the loop slightly longer, and push the 2 sides slightly together till they have the shape you want. Work harden the ear wires in a tumbler or using a mallet on the steel block. Make 2 and attach them to the loop holding the glass spike.
