Have you ever gone to make a pair of earrings only to realize that the earring is hanging the wrong way off the earwire? Rather than add a jump ring to the design, a quick way to fix the issue is to simply twist the loop on the earwire! You won’t believe how many times we have used this trick to correct how our earrings hang!.
Use a pair of chain nose pliers to hold the earwire above the loop (and decorative coil or bead if it has one).
With a second pair of needle nose pliers, hold the loop and twist until it is facing the desired direction.
Make any necessary adjustments if the top part of the earwire twists as well. Once it loops the way you need it, attach your beads and enjoy!
