Wire Earring Step 4

Step 4.
Once oxidised lengths are cooled, hammer with the ball pein hammer, this not only hardens the wire and creates a pattern, but also gives a lovely sheen to the metal.

All pieces are now ready to be assembled, using the round nose pliers, create loops (like an eye pin) in one end of each length. These are the placed on to the hammered jump ring and carefully adjusted with the round & flat nose pliers.

Finally, add an earwire to each hammered jumpring. ( I will also to a step to step on creating your own interesting earwires)
