Free Tip Friday: Wire Earrings with Briolettes and Antiqued Wire (Plus Hammering!)

So much fun today on FTF!
I just love these earrings.

Just a few twists of wire and a briolette wrap and you have a stylish pair of earrings!
Here is a list of the bare copper wire that I used:

Bottom wrapped unit: 16G wire armature and 22G wire coiled over the top.
