Earrings have always been my favorite type of jewelry to make.  They are small scale i.e. they don't require a lot of materials and are generally faster to make than say a necklace. So if you are still stuck making basic dangles, consider moving beyond those!  This fantastic wire wrapped copper triangular earrings tutorial by Alesand over on livemaster.ru teaches you how to make the frame with a little bit of metal work - filing and hammering.  Then it is on to basic wire weaving.

See what I mean?  Her front dangles are thus framed by her triangular wire work making this design unique and memorable!

The tutorial in Russian and needs to be translated.  Computer users : Use the Chrome browser, right click anywhere on the page and select "translate to English".  Mobile device users : Download the Chrome app, add the URL. The app asks if you wish to translate.
