Microfold Earrings - Step 5

Now the first set is pinched or "confirmed"  we need to bring it even further together
now pinch together the next set so that the folds are tighter causing it to arch
Once arched you can straighten out earring if it warps or bend against a round pole to tighten and harden the folds.  the ends can be soldered with a jump ring and earring findings or you can drill a hole and put a jump ring and earring findings.  These are lightweight earrings.  they can be enameled or apply a patina to dress them up

voila - simple and fun earrings
video coming soon if you could not follow
