I've seen someting called EZ Ear Wires but don't know if this is
what I need.
I reviewed this tool for Art Jewelry a couple years ago. I didn't
think much of it. The earwires were not, to my eye,
well-proportioned or attractive.
Unless you are making a type of earwires that cannot be bought, this
is one of those things you cannot possibly benefit from making
yourself, IMO. One of my policies is, generally speaking, to avoid
doing anything that can be done better by a machine. Plus, my time
is valuable, and so making earwires myself costs more than buying
I buy plain wires with a "leg"-- no loop formed on them yet-- and
put on beads, coils, or whatever I want and bend up the loop to hang
things from. That way, they are "custom" but uniform and quick.
