I made these fancy teardrop earring hooks using 20 gauge 14/20 gold filled wire. I hand formed the ear wires and then gradually hammered the ends and bottom of the teardrop loops to make them flare. They were then tumbled for extra strength.  The ends have been rounded and smoothed for a nice comfortable fit

Approximate Measurements:

Why I choose to use 14/20 gold filled and what it means:

Gold filled is made by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of solid Gold onto a base metal (usually brass). I use 14/20 gold filled wire to create my pieces. What that means is that 1/20 (5%) of the metal weight is 14 karat solid gold, the same applies to 12/20 gold filled, which would contain 1/20 (5%) of 12 karat gold and so on.. I choose to work with 14/20 gold filled because of it's beautiful rich color and the fact that is wears just like real gold. It has beauty, durability, and strength. It is a quality alternative to solid gold at an affordable price.
