Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Perfect for a summer party, wedding, or brunch, these long dangle earrings feature chevron chain and beautiful Swarovski pearls. Create even more drama by extending the length of chevron chain.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Place an 8mm Swarovski pearl onto a head pin. Create a wrapped wire loop after the bead and trim off excess wire.
  2. Cut your chevron chain so that it is 8 chevron links long.
  3. Open a jump ring and attach it to the end chevron chain link as well as the wrapped wire loop you just made. Close the jump ring.
  4. Place a 4mm Swarovski pearl onto your unfinished earring hook. Finish the earring hook by creating a simple loop at the base.
  5. Open a jump ring and link it to the chevron chain as well as your earring hook. Close the jump ring.
  6. All done, enjoy!
