Have you ever struggled to make earrings in mirror images that match? Many wire artists have told me that they are able to do one side, but just can’t seem to get the other side look completely right. Well, this project is perfect for practising making mirror images – and it’s super easy!

The Reflected Love Earrings were inspired by Claude Monet’s Water Lilies paintings and were originally created for The Year of Jewelry Project in 2017. Earlier this year I did a Facebook Live broadcast demonstrating these earrings, and I’m happy to bring them back now in a new, more complete step-by-step video!

These earrings not only mirror each other from left to right, they match from top to bottom – and all you need to do is pay attention to one critical step!

Give this project a try today, and then share your results!

Work hardening is something you really have to watch out for when you work with wire. In this video diary, I share what happened with one of my projects when I tried to push my wire *just a little* too far.
