This would be a great project for someone who is new at wire wrapping. I linked to it in my weekly craft roundup at http://craftscrazy.com/weekly-craft-roundup-feb-15-2014/.

Thank you for the instruction! I am just beginning to learn jewelry making. I put a pendant type stone in the middle of earring and I did not have the connective chain so I used piece of wire and a bead. I made some mistakes, I think the biggest was I was nervous to use too much wire and so it did not look as substantial or uniform, also they were slightly different in size. Thanx again.
