Jewelry Class

I enrolled in another jewelry class with Alice Gustin, titled "Rope Your Ears."  What fun!  I learned to make twisted wire earrings, as well as the earring wires!  On one pair, I learned to use a twisting tool, which makes the twist in the wire even and consistent. There was a bit of a learning curve for me, but I finally got the hang of it.  Making the earring wires was not very hard either, once you learn a few easy tricks.  The pair of twisted wire earrings with the amethyst and moonstone tear-drops were made in class; working with the tiny holes in these stones was a new experience for me too.   I also made the large earring wires in class, but added the stones after I got home.   Now I'm inspired to make more!


  1. Is there anything that you cannot do? You are clearly a Renaissance woman!

  2. Love the earrings.
