Retired - Claire Earrings

PROJECT E3028
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These feminine oval paisley earrings have a classic feel with a vintage touch. The antiqued silver filigree connector link looks quite pretty against the sparkly black rhinestone cup chain.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will need a piece of scrap wire to apply your glue with.
  1. With your flush cutters, cut a cup chain length that is 18 rhinestone links long. Set aside.
  2. Watch the video on How to use Nunn Design Prong Settings for Chatons.
  3. Following what you learned in the video, place your black round chaton into its prong setting.
  4. Next, using your pliers, open up the loop at the bottom of your earring hook (the way you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the top loop of your filigree connector link and close.
  5. Open up a jump ring with your pliers and slide on the loop from the bottom of your filigree connector link and also the top loop from your prong setting. Close the jump ring.
  6. Snip off the loop at the bottom of your prong setting with your flush cutters.
  7. Lastly, take your scrap piece of wire and place a thin line of E6000 glue along the front side of your filigree connector link. Carefully line your black rhinestone cup chain onto the glue, going in a circular motion, completely outlining the edge. See photo for exact placement. Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
  8. That's it!
