The charms in these earrings are attached by opening the links of the chain. If you substitute a different chain, be sure to choose one that has open links.
  1. Separate two pieces of chain that are each 8 links long (about 1.25") by opening the links like jump rings.
  2. Open the bottom link of one chain and hang an amethyst channel crystal charm from it. Then close the link.
  3. Open the next link. Hang an amethyst charm from one side of the link. Then move the rest of the chain to the other side (so that it sits next to the amethyst charm) and hang a crystal charm. Close the link. When you hold the length of chain, you should have one charm hanging off each side of the link, with the first charm hanging below them.
  4. Repeat this process, hanging the amethyst charms all from the same side and the crystal charms all from the same side. Making sure that the colors are each on one side will result in the spiral effect when the chain hangs naturally.
  5. Open the loop on a gold plated one ball earring hook and hang the top link of the chain from it, making sure the charms on that link hang to either side of the earring hook. Close the earring hook.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 with the second length of chain to create your second earring.
