How to Make Bridal Earrings
Pearl and Wire Earrings by Rachel Savané
This stunning design gets its style from Scandinavian simplicity and attention to the functional aspects of a design. "When creating earrings, I do not hide the practical by sticking a post on the back or hanging a fabulous design from a prefabricated wire," Rachel says. "My earrings boast their curvilinear wire, which feeds through the ear and swishes back to add another dimension to the piece." Rachel’s striking wedding earrings are the perfect blend of form and function, contemporary and classic aesthetic for the modern bride who still appreciates a nod to the wedding tradition of pearl jewelry. Use soldering, basic fabrication, and polishing/finishing techniques in this tutorial.
