Every time I see or make elven or elvish ear wires, I am reminded of the movie Lord of the Rings. There were several elvish ears on display! This style of ear wires is popular because they are different. They are very easy to make - I am sure many readers have already done so. Shown here is a pair I made for myself.
There are probably different ways to go about making them but this is how I do it.
Update : Forgot to mention you must also debur the cut end of the wire with metal files or use a special cup file. This is the part that has to go through the ear holes so it has to be smooth. See tutorial post.
You can also adorn the ear wires with some cool wire wrapping or simply add a dangle as I did with my Droplet design below (Life Collection in support of cancer research). One beader at our workshop combined both threaded beads and a dangle in her lovely fluorite and pearl design.
