In my quest to make my life easier, I stumbled across this fantastic and simple tutorial for making ear wires. It is so simple, so quick and so obvious, I was like "why the heck didn't I think of this!?!??
Before I give you the link, here is a pic of the first pair of ear wires I made using this method.
I meant to mention in my original post, that more and more, I'm making my own ear wires and head pins when I can. These components, especially ear wires, have become so expensive that I just can't afford to buy them in the volume that I use. Up until I found this tutorial, I dreaded making ear wires because it was so hard to get them exactly the same. Now it's a piece of cake!

Hey ladies, I usually make my own ear wires. Why didn't you ask me? I would have told you right away:) Small advice - after finishing the ear wires, hammer them very gently. Hammering makes them stronger (well, this is true with regard to Sterling Silver, I guess it could be the same with other metals).
