Ear cuffs or wraps are wonderful and increasing popular. They are alternatives to earrings as they do not require pierced ears. Amelia Lune generously created this awesome ear cuff tutorial after she was inundated with requests for instructions!
Her tutorial includes a basic ear cuff for those who aren't into showy pieces. The extended ear cuff tutorial does allow for all sorts of creative license by adding beads and chains. It's stunning when the ear cuff is attached to a regular ear dangle.
The curving part can be done easily if you have large bail forming pliers. Short of that, use something like a pen or a wooden dowel as shown in the ear cuff tutorial by Melita of MG Jewelry. How she forms her ear cuff is different from the above method.
Chelsey's simple ear cuff tutorial on Cut Out and Keep is ear-resistable as she says! So much so several people have made their own versions based on her basic how-to. It's yet another inspiration on where to add dangles.
