A perfect example of subtle sculpting, the Scribble earrings will show you how to sculpt flattened wire instead of sculpting your weave. This technique is a great way to draw attention to the fluid movement of the shaped wire. Add a simple bead as the dangle for an everyday look, or add a set of elegant gems for special occasion earrings.

These jaw-dropping earrings featuring modified Soumak weave will have everyone asking for a pair! Adding new skills to your wire jewelry repertoire has never been so easy. Sarah’s step-by-step instructions make wire weaving so fun, you’ll want to start the next project right away.
