Larissa Earrings

PROJECT E3030
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make these earrings by combining two different styles of chain dangling from a pretty connector link. Finish them off with a black Czech glass teardrop bead.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting three 1" lengths of your silver plated figure eight chain with your flush cutters. Set aside.
  2. Next, cut two 1" lengths of your silver plated rolo chain with your flush cutters.
  3. Take your silver plated earring hook, and with your chain nose pliers, open the loop (like how you would a jump ring) and slide on the top loop from one of your silver plated ornate connector links and close.
  4. Next, open up a jump ring with your pliers and slide on the last link from one end of one of your silver plated rolo chain lengths and close.
  5. You will continue to add chain lengths to your connector link by opening and attaching jump rings. Add your 3 silver plated figure eight chain lengths to the next three loops on your connector link, followed by a silver plated rolo chain to the last loop. Your chain lengths should all be dangling off of the connector length at this point. See photo for reference.
  6. Next, open up 5 jump rings and slide one onto the last link of each dangling chain length. Also slide on the respective loop from the connector link, making sure to line each chain up properly. Close each jump ring with your pliers.
  7. Slide on a black teardrop bead onto a silver plated headpin and also the loop that's at the bottom of your connector link. Create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters.
  8. You're done!
