Here's my first attempt with wire/jewelry. Cheesy I should have used longer wire and a more complicated wrapping pattern, but there's always next time, right?





I think a pair of these would look nice as earrings, but sadly I don't have my ears pierced. Sad So i'm stuck with having it as a pendant.

Very nice! 

Wire-wrapping a bead isn't really necessary unless you just want to do that, but were you perhaps thinking of the more decorative "wrapped loop" that's used to finish off a top loop?... like these:

http://jewelrymaking.about.com/library/weekly/aa092198.htm

(if so. there also a few more lessons on my Wire page, under "Basic Wire Shapes":
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/wire.htm )


Btw, there are clip-on earring findings that have a loop attached in some way (or perhaps a hole) so that anything(s) on a jump ring can be attached to them if you'd like to go that way (see examples in link below), though each of your pieces certaily makes a nice delicate pendant.
