Retired - Carefree Summer Festival Earrings

PROJECT E2213
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A Blue Lace Agate Gemstone sits atop a fringe of cup chain and dagger beads in these lovely festival worthy earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a toothpick or scrap of wire for this project.
  1. Take one bezel cup and on the long side locate the center loops. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to bend these loops out so they lay flat. On the bottom do the same with the two loops to the right of center and the two loops to the left of center.
  2. Add a dab of glue to the center of the cup and place the gemstone inside. Press firmly. Set aside to dry.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the cup chain into the following lengths: 5 cups, 6 cups, 7 cups, 6 cups and 5 cups.
  4. Next, add a cup chain end to both ends of each length.
  5. Open one jump ring and attach one dagger bead to one loop of the cup chain end. Repeat for all five lengths of chain.
  6. Use a jump ring to hang the length of chain that is 7 cups long to the bottom center loop of the bezel cup. Attach the length of 6 cups to the loop just to the left of the one you just added and then attach the length of 5 cups to the loop just to the left of that one. Mirror this on the other side to finish adding the lengths of chain.
  7. Open the loop of the earring finding, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to the top center loop of the bezel cup. Close the loop and you're all done!
  8. We recommend allowing the gemstone and cup to dry fully for at least 24 hours before wearing.
