I've just decided to try to make my own earrings, since figuring out that I'm sensitive to most metals that commercial earrings are made with. I'm thinking of trying to make some earrings with titanium ear hooks (like these). My question, as someone who has never made earrings before, is: will it be difficult to get beads onto such a hard wire? Isn't titanium impossible to bend?Any advice is welcome!

I say go a head and create your own earrings. It might turn out to be a great business venture for you someday. If your really good at it, other women will probably start admiring your earrings and asking "where did you buy those? They are lovely".

As for titanium I dont know but do some more research and find out what other materials that you can use that wont affect your ears.
