Wow! Put this down as one of those moments where I wish I'd thought of that!! A tutorial for making a pair of perfectly matched earwires came out today in Jewelry Making Daily and it is pure genius! At first, it looks like she's making a standard clasp and you think you're reading the wrong tutorial, but then, viola! - a well placed snip and two earwires are yours. I haven't actually tried it yet, but I don't see any reason it won't work. Judge for yourself by reading the tutorial here. You may need to create a logon for Jewelry Making Daily, but it's worth it!
