All in One Wire Rosette Earrings Tutorial

By on Thursday, April 28, 2016 6 Comments

I remember when I made the classic wire wrapped ring without any bead a long time ago. I thought the resulting rosette was the coolest thing to discover. But have a look at this all in one wire rosette earrings tutorial by I Make Stuff. It is definitely cooler!


It is ingenious.  A rosette ring is first made from wire. Then cutting the wire band then produced the wire for the rest of the earrings!

Consider starting off with a small round bead or crystal for the middle of the rosette.

  1. Wow, nice. I would suggest using a ball point pen barrel to shape the earwire part, but other than that, looks like an easy item to make. Recently I've been selling tiny copper rosette pinky rings to "big" kids that were originally intended to be for little kids. The ring and earrings would make for a great Mother's Day gift.

    1. Yes, a pen barrel is an easy way to shape the ear wire part. My preferred tool is the large bail forming pliers! http://www.beadinggem.com/2010/01/how-to-use-bail-forming-pliers-tutorial.html

  2. Very cute!
    Don't forget to use the cup burr or some other smoothing method on the other 3 ends as well. :-) I rarely get irritated by the actual earring posts or wires - it's the unsecured stuff on the back. :-)

    1. A great reminder! My cup bur wore out so I have been using a sanding pad which works as well.

  3. Aren't they delightful! Especially for those who like to wear smaller earrings.

    I think the french hook needs to be hammered with a nylon mallet to give it some strength by the looks of it and I totally agree on using something besides your fingers to form the shape.

    However - it was be just as easy to turn them into post earrings and would probably sit nicer on the ear then with the hook. I've been trying to figure out how her shape would make the rosette sit once it was on. Hmmm.....I guess a test is in order.....
