Katie Parker is a British designer and seasoned instructor.  She not only has an Etsy store but says she "has appeared as a Guest Designer on Jewellery Maker TV channel in the UK and also hold Workshops for a growing number of students in my local area."

I came across her Youtube channel when I stumbled upon her lovely yet easy wire wrapped ombre earrings tutorial.

This lovely design has a teardrop frame. Note that one wire end forms the small loop for hanging onto the ear wire. and the other forms the larger loop in the interior of the teardrop. I love how she uses seed beads in different colors to fill the wire connecting the inner loop with the frame. Clever!

The materials she used are in the video description. However, she is not clear about the wire gauge. I would use 20 G for the ear wire, 20 or 18 G for the frame and 26 G for the wrapping. 

I can just see people making these in different color schemes!
