This week’s tool: Easy Ear Wire Maker, #HOL-100.00

Demonstration by Kate, JewelryTools.com

You know, when I started out making jewelry, I was using premade surgical steel ear wires from the craft store: not too spendy, already made. For a long time, I was pretty happy with them. That is, until I started photographing my work, and I realized that the ear wires really stuck out. They gave my jewelry a bit of a factory look, which was a surprise for me, since I spent so long creating the handmade components!

Making ear wires that are easy to "batch" a lot at once, but still look handmade, is really important! The Easy Ear Wire Maker will allow you to make dozens of ear wires in one sitting, with just a couple twists of the wrist. See Kate demonstrate in the video above just how easy the Easy Ear Wire Maker is to use!

    I would like to see a close up of the finished earwire. I make all my earwires using a mandrel and pliers. It’s really not hard to do and I don’t expect to change that. Still it would be nice to see the finished project on this a little more clearly.

    Does it only make the one design? Can other earwire designs be made on it??? I would love to find out. Thanks!

      Hi Daniella, you can make the earring as Kate demonstrated, or you can pause during the process after making the initial big bend and then manually form the wire into a kidney ear wire or any other shape you wish. Thanks for asking!
