I’ve been looking for ways update my jewelry this year. Shopping around the stores all I’m seeing are thin gold wire hoops everywhere. I have a ton of wire left over in my stash from my gold wire bangles, so I decided to give wire shaping a try.

Shaping wire with jewelry pliers looks easy but can be frustrating. The hard part is making straight crisp lines and if you are trying to make two identical pieces it can definitely be trying. So, I came up with a simple trick to get hose lines even, smooth and straight. Here’s how I made them!

Supplies:

  • 20 Gauge Gold Beading Wire
  • Jewelry Pliers: Wire Cutter, Flat Nose Plier, Round Nose Plier
  • Wood Plank

Make 3 more bends in the wire.

  • Top: 1 1/2 inch
  • Rightt Side: 1 3/4 inch
  • Bottom: 1 1/4

The left side length should be 1 1/2 inches, but you need to leave a little extra wire to make a loop in the end for the clasp. Trim the wire down. Grab the end of the wire and bend it around with a round nose plier until it meets the side wire.

This is what you should end up with before straightening the wire.

Now for the trick to making them look perfectly straight. I took a thin wood plank and I placed the wire section over it.  Press and smooth the wire down flat. Rotate sections until they are all flat all the way around.

Gently bend the wire clasp to adjust and close properly. This gauge of wire bends pretty easily so be careful when handling them. This gauge wire seemed to be the right width to go through a pierced hole easier than a larger wire would with out irritation. If you want to use a higher gauge to add more strength, just test to see if the wire will fit easily in your piercings.

If you want to use a higher gauge to add more strength to the earrings, just test to see if the wire will fit easily into your piercings.

I found the easiest way to make the earrings identical was to place the wire next to the first earring and follow the exact same bends with your pliers then smooth them both again with the plank. Enjoy!!

    Time to whip out my jewelry making supplies. Do you think the 20 gauge would hold up to the weight of a few beads?
