Shaping the Wire

To shape the wire for your teardrop thread earrings, find a jar close to desired size of earring.  Cut  wire, wrap around the jar. With pliers twist  the two ends together to tighten. 

Remove wire from the jar by sliding it down  jar, you will find that you have a perfeclty round wire hoop.

Next, find a smaller bottle and place the pill bottle in the center of the hoop. Slowly squeeze the wire into the sides and back of the pill bottle. 

 Carefully straighten the two ends of the wire hoop.
