Banana Leaf Earrings

PROJECT E2065
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
These whimsical earrings feature these lightweight acrylic drop pendants. When they are layered they look like something made for Carmen Miranda.
Instructions
By following these instructions you will make one earring. Repeat this process to create a second earring.
  1. By opening and closing jump rings, make a "chain" 9 jump rings long.
  2. Attach one drop to one end of the "chain" by opening one jump ring and closing it around the final link.
  3. In this same manner, moving up the chain, attach two drops to the sides of jump ring number 2. Repeat on jump rings 4, 6, and 8.
  4. To the final jump ring, attach the earring hook, same way you would a jump ring.
  5. All done!
