By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting your 2 inches of Gen Y chain in half.
  2. Next, place a bicone bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead. Make a total of 12 of these dangles. Also place a scarab bead onto a head pin and make a simple wire loop after it.
  3. Open and link a jump ring to the end chain link of your cut chain as well as the earring finding. Close the jump ring.
  4. On the other end of the chain, open the simple wire loop on your scarab bead dangle and link it to the end chain link. Close it back up. You will open and close simple wire loops the same way you open and close jump rings.
  5. Now attach a bicone dangle to every chain link along the length of your earring. You will want to attach a total of 12.
  6. All done, enjoy!
