These stunning earrings are wire interpretations of traditional coiled basketry techniques and Art Nouveau design. Not only is the coiling technique perfect for framing special beads, but it also creates eyes below the frame from which to dangle gemstones. To make both earrings match, work each step for both frames before proceeding to the next step.
