Whew!  I've always enjoyed making ear wires, and haven't been keeping up very well with listings in my Ruby Mountain Beads  shop on Etsy.

Part of it has been lack of time for it, partly keeping up with adjusting prices to keep up with the ever changing metal prices...

I've got all kinds of excuses.  

But, the other night I sat down with my wires, and started making ear wires.  I am offering many of the same styles of ear wires I use in my own earring designs, and have plans to offer more styles.  

I want to do a bunch with ball ends too.  Brass and copper included!

So, these are all listed now in my Etsy shop.  And....I've got some bronze wire on the way, and soon I'll be able to offer findings in that metal as well.

I also have plans for clasps, jump rings and head pins.  The problem I'm always up against is time.  My family always comes first, and they are a demanding bunch!  :)
