Jelly Fish Earrings Wire Working Project
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
The process for making these is pretty easy and can be modified in many ways. You can make the arches long, short, square, big, or small. Or, instead of using a piece of rectangular wire as the base, you could cut some 22-gauge sheet into small 1?2" x 1?2" squares. Then, you could add a total of 7 or more holes for the dangles. The base piece can be a triangle, oval, irregular, or whatever you want.
