Athena's Wedding Earring Tutorial

Athena's Wedding Earring Tutorial

Created by: Tiffany White

Designer Tips

  • Assemble all freshwater pearls onto headpins, and wrap prior to assembling the earrings
  • Practice makes perfect! You may want to practice this technique with inexpensive wire and an "orphan bead".
  • When wire-wrapping it is always better to have too much wire, rather than too little.
