I am trying to make earrings in which the earwires are not soldered
on but made from the same sheet metal as the rest of the earring. The
earrings are formed by anticlastic raising. Trying to figure out how
this is done is driving me crazy. In my last experiment I cut out the
earring shape with a 2mm wide “tail” which would become the earwire.
I shaped the earwire section into a U shape and then put it thru a
drawplate. That went well but the problem is I can’t pull the piece
back out from the rear of the drawplate. Obviously, I can’t pull it
through completely as you normally would when drawing wire. Maybe I’m
on the wrong track here. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
