I guest posted this tutorial on Brassy Apple last week as a part of her Bling it series!
If you missed it, here it is again :)
Today I will be showing you all how to make a pair of silver chain earrings!
Chain, earring hooks, two link beads, two small jump rings, needle nose pliers and wire cutters.
Step 1: Cut a piece of chain around 2 inches long using wire cutters
Step 2: Cut a matching length of chain. An easy way to make sure your chain is the same length is to string the chain onto a piece of wire and then cut a matching piece.
(don't mind the spray paint on my hands....it was for a future wedding craft project that will be shown soon!)
Step 3: Cut around 6 or 7 more pieces of wire in varying lengths (do this for each earring).
Step 4: Open up a small jump ring and carefully string all the pieces of wire onto it.
Step 5: Add the link bead onto the jump ring and use needle nose pliers to close the jump ring.
Step 6: Open up the other side of the link bead using the needle nose pliers again.
Step 7: Add on the earring wire, and then close the link up using the pliers.
Make your matching earring, and then you are done!
These earrings almost remind me of tassels. So fun!
