    Sorry about the delay guys! Had some major problems.
But finally! The Tutorial!

Things you will need:
Wire cutters
Round nose pliers
16g wire (any color)
14g wire (smae color)
sewing thread or embrodiery floss (1-4 colors)
wire coiler (or a ink well from a pen)
Ear hooks

Note for the pictures to turn out good I used embrodery floss fully intact
the thread wouldn't show up.
If you use embroidery floss seperate it down to one thin strand.


Step 1:
Cut a length of the 16g wire

Step 2:
Roughly shape it and then coil the 14g wire

(I forget to photograph this part)

Step 3:
Slide the coil onto the 16g shape.

Step 4:
Close the shape and tie the string onto the top.

(I know it's hard to see.)

Step 5:
Begin wrappingstart by taking the thread and wrapping it
down to the center coil.

Step 6:
Bring the thread around to the front and and up
to the coil to the right of the closure.


Step 7:
Continue in that manner
(Note: wrap to right on the top left on the bottom.)

Keep going!

Step 8:
Bring it back up and tie to the top
Start the next color by tieing it up top and
start it wrapping halfway down the "hoop"

Same wrapping as before
Downwards from the 1st coil upwards from the center

Note: I flipped this picuters horozontally.

Step 9:
Start lower down for the next color tie off
and start always by the center.

Step 10: ENJOY!!

Front and back with seperated embrodiery floss.

I'll try to get better pictures sorry.

Show me your results!!

Thanks  Cheesy
This is great...it has cleared up alot of things for me, like the gauge wire (i using 24 and 26...stupid me)
Anyway..... quick question what gauge wire did you use from the top and how did you finish with the hook ....(so it looks nice). Grin

Again ...great tute and thanks for sharing the secret LOL  Grin.

Great tute! I've been loving these, so this will be fun. Quick question though, you said you used the 16g wire to make the form, and the 14g wire to coil. However, in the pictures the form looks like it's thicker wire and the coil like it's thinner wire. Did you mix them by any chance? Thanks!
