BEADS: Delica and Tila beads are my favorites because they are the highest quality available. They are lightweight and stack beautifully for a defined, clean aesthetic.
THREAD: Nymo thread and Fireline are my strong threading materials.
EAR WIRES: Ear wires are handmade by me in sterling silver or gold filled 21 or 22 gauge wire. I can use other metals upon request. The ear wires are made in a specific way which prevents them from slipping off of the earrings.
BACKING: The top portion of the classic fringe earrings (excluding the tassel earrings) is bonded and securely stitched to repurposed leather or faux leather. This technique gives the earrings a sturdiness and prevents the top portion from curling and distorting the design.
**NOTE: I am phasing out the use of leather but I still have a bit left and I don’t want it to go to waste. I am planning on a vegan future for WMJ. Requests for faux leather now: bring them on, but please contact me before you order.
