How To Make Beautiful Earrings Based On The Spiral and Figure 8; in this video I demonstrate how to construct these beautiful earrings in easy to follow, step by step instructions. The link that I introduce you to in this video represents a union of the spiral with a figure 8 link. This hybridization of links results in a uniquely beautiful and elegant new link ideally suited for dangling earrings. To make the actual earrings that you see in the video, I used 18 gauge, nickel silver wire. When I create these earrings in sterling silver, I use .035 sterling silver wire, soft, round. You can also experiment with the many wires available at craft stores. I particularly like to use Black Stove Pipe wire. Black wire gives these earrings a distinctively unique look. The construction of these earrings that combine the spiral with a coil requires the use of three different types of pliers, round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, and diagonal cutters.

Each earring consists of three individual links, and each link is constructed from a six inch length of silver wire. To complete the earrings once the basic links are finished, and linked to one another, I attach them to a pair of pre-made ear wires that I purchase at a craft store.
