Making simple wire loops is one of the core techniques used in creating wire jewelry. Mastering this method will help you form perfect uniform loops when making eyepins, dangles, and linked bead chains. Practicing these simple loops is also a great way to become comfortable using your round nose pliers as a beginner before moving on to more advanced techniques like wrapped wire loops!

All three jewelry pieces are different, but they all have one thing in common: Spirals! Lots and lots of spirals. The earrings alone have 12 spirals, if you count the tiny ones on the French-style earrings. Spirals have been used in jewelry and other art forms for so many centuries, it’s impossible to say who invented them first. The spiral as a symbol is universal and rich with meaning; as a design motif, it’s beautifully balanced.
