Desi Earrings in Jet

PROJECT E1066
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
These lovely earrings have an elegant vintage feel and are a snap to make. They'd be the perfect accent for any occasion, whether formal or casual.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to Make the Desi Rhinestone Cup Chain Vintage Style Earrings. This video will walk you through the process used to create these earrings.
  2. Cut a length of 24pp jet rhinestone silver plated cup chain that is 13 links long. Then cut a length of 18pp crystal rhinestone silver plated cup chain that is 9 links long.
  3. Place a thin layer of glue into the bottom of a silver plated bezel earring finding. As demonstrated in the video, place the jet cup chain along the edge of the bezel, making sure to collapse down the spaces between the links. Then place the crystal cup chain inside the jet.
  4. Put some extra glue into the center opening and carefully place an ss29 jet crystal chaton into the opening. Make sure that it's level, not tilted to one side at all.
  5. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
