Retired - Ayelet Earrings

PROJECT E7007
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Hammered brass findings lend old-world charm to these earrings, the perfect accessory for strolling through open-air markets down ancient cobblestone alleys.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using flush cutters, cut three pieces of chain -- one 3/4 inch piece, one 1 1/2 inch piece, and one 2 1/2 inch piece. Set these aside.
  2. Take one head pin and string one Czech glass bead, and make a wrapped wire loop. Repeat twice more, so you have three wire-wrapped bead dangles.
  3. Using your pliers, open a jump ring. Attach one Czech glass bead dangle to the middle hole on the bottom of one brass fan connector.
  4. Open another jump ring. Slide on the first link of all three pieces of chain, followed by another Czech glass bead dangle. Attach this jump ring to the hole on the left side of the brass connector.
  5. Open a third jump ring and slide on the last link of all three pieces of chain, followed by the third Czech glass bead dangle. Attach this jump ring to the hole on the right side of the brass connector, creating a cascade of chain between the left and right holes.
  6. Make sure all three beads are dangling in front of the chain. Your earring is now complete!
