Learning is the gateway to your limitless creativity !

"The Seed within"

This tutorial file contains 23 pages with 46 photos of the process of creation of a pair of hoop earrings based on Rodis "Seed Within" creation.


All the processes are organized into 28 steps which makes it super easy to follow. You'll find in this tutorial tips and tricks, which will help you create your own beautiful and flowing designs. 

Specifically designed for the beginner, you will be introduced into preparing wire, hammering and forming along with wire wrapping. - You just need the passion & THE TOOLS!

For this project you'll need:


•    High Temperature Torch,

•    Rotary tool with a sanding attachment and a polishing attachment, 

•    Round nose pliers,

•    Flat tipped  pliers, 

•    Tweezers (10cm – 15cm), metal and optional plastic,

•    2 silver beads (3 mm), 2 copper beads (2 mm),

•    2 flat turquoise stones (6-7 mm), or your preference (round or flat),

•    2 ear hooks (in this project I used Niobium ear hooks, but you can use silver or copper, or make your own)

•    Liver Sulfur,

•    Fine grade steel wool.
