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 crystal rhinestone brass cup chain that is 13 links long. Then cut a length of 18pp white pearl brass cup chain that is 9 links long.
  3. Place a thin layer of glue into the bottom of a gold plated bezel earring finding. As demonstrated in the video, place the crystal cup chain along the edge of the bezel, making sure to collapse down the spaces between the links. Then place the pearl cup chain inside the crystal.
  4. Put some extra glue into the center opening and carefully place an ss29 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.
