Pearl Wire Wrapped Post Earrings

A few weeks ago I wrote a tutorial on how to make wire wrapped pearl post earrings.  This type of design is also sometimes referred to as "caged bead" earrings.  This week I made several more of these pretty baubles to list in my Etsy shop.

In case you missed the tutorial, you can check it out here. For these earrings, I used different colors of Swarovski crystal 8mm pearls and 20 gauge wire.  I used several different kinds of wire - sterling silver, silver filled, 14K gold filled, rose gold filled, bronze and gunmetal.

These earrings are such fun to make!  As you can see I got carried away and made them in every color of pearl I had on hand.  My next project might be to make these with different color of crystals, so check back soon!  In the mean time, you can find these beauties at
