Tired of spending a bunch of money on premade earwires? Why bother when you can make them yourself to match any project. Join Lisa as she shows you how to perfect this technique. In this class you will learn to make a basic earwire and one embellished with a bead. Learn to harden the wire as well as file the tip of the wire for a more comfortable fit in the ear. You will also be introduced to great tools which are super useful for this project.

This class has a run time of 16 minutes.

Very good instruction - very clear and concise. Lisa explains in simple terms how to do something, and "why" a big plus in my book, as I retain information better, and longer when I know the reasons I am doing it this way or that. Like the end with the design ideas, so we can see how to combine different techniques learned in other classes.
Thanks.

Another excellent video. The mandrel sizes -- 3mm section of round-nose, 5-6mm on round-nose, 10mm three-step barrel -- let us to use those measurements on other tools to create the same design. I usually use the six-step looper; this is the first time I've seen a good use for the three-step. Thank you for shining more light into the darkness!

Also, thank you very much for the cup bur demonstration.

I've been making jewelry for quite a while now, but ALWAYS enjoy watching Beaducation classes. I find that I always pick up new tips and techniques to incorporate into my own work. Lisa is just an outstanding teacher and I love her easy flowing manner and way of teaching classes. She makes it so easy to understand! Thank you Lisa and Beaducation.
