Retired - Byzantine Spike Earrings

PROJECT E2082
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
The Swarovski Crystal Spike pendant is the star of these chain maille earrings. Sleek but edgy, the silver byzantine weave provides an open and dynamic chain to showcase your beautiful focal pendant.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by watching the video: How to do a Byzantine Chain Maille Weave.
  2. Begin your chain mail weave by opening a silver filled 8mm jump ring and linking it through the hole of the spike pendant. Close the jump ring. Repeat with one more ring.
  3. Let the two jump rings you just added be the first two in your byzantine weave. Add another 9 sets of two jump rings, doing the byzantine weave. As seen in the video.
  4. On the last two jump rings attach the sterling silver earring hook.
  5. All done!
