A few more...

While I could have purchased hooks in the same color of wire and saved myself the time, I decided that I wanted a longer and more rustic finding, so I simply made them myself. Take a desired length of wire, create a small end loop, bend the wire softly over your pinkie finger to create a soft curve and use flat nose pliers to create a small bend at the end of the wire.

If your cut is not super clean, use a small jewelry file to clean off the wire... one or two times across a nail file will help smooth out the end as well and make putting the earrings on, more comfortable. Dare to use the unique and more rare stones, crystals and handcrafted beads even. ;)

I've got some new tutorials coming out soon... so keep checking back!
