How to Make Earrings – Celtic Knot Earrings

This project shows you how to make a more intricate looking pair of earrings with a Celtic knot wire design. While these earrings look intricate and complicated, they are simple to make when broken down, step-by-step. These earrings do require additional tools, such as a jig peg board. You can either purchase a jig peg board from WigJig, or make one yourself, out of something like wood and nails.

Tools:

1 pair of round-nosed pliers
1 WigJig Delphi Jewelry Making Tool
Wire cutters (I’m using tin snips in this video, as my wire cutters are broken)
smooth-surfaced hammer
Anvil (or hard striking surface)

Materials:

1 pair of French hooks
2 head pins
2 small beads (4mm) of light colour
6 small beads of (4mm) of dark colour such as onyx.
15 inches approximate of 18ga wire

To look similar to the wire earrings I make in this video, the French hooks, the head pins and the wire should ideally be made from the same type of metal. However, you are only limited by your imagination!
