Brandy Opals

I honestly forgot how much fun it is to make your own earring hooks. There's so much design freedom!!

Brandy Opals - Ooo La La

Fat Pinkie for scale
Generally, use a 20 - 18 gauge wire for earring hooks. 18 gauge can be uncomfortable for some, but I've sold over 500 18 gauge hooks and not gotten a single complaint, so it can't be that bad!

Tumble in a tumbler to harden them up. Don't forget to use a cup burr on the ends so they're nice and smooth in your ear.
