Retired - Claudia Earrings

PROJECT E2101
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
A delicate pair chandelier earrings can elevate your look from casual to sophisticated. These earrings utilize a beautiful filigree strand reducer by Nunn Design and a faceted Czech glass teardrop focal bead.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Onto one head pin string on one teardrop bead, with the large end down. Make a simple wire loop. Cut off the excess wire.
  2. Cut off a length of chain, 9 links long.
  3. Open one jump ring and attach one side of the chain to one of the bottom loops of the strand reducer. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open another jump ring and attach the other side of this chain to the other bottom loop of the strand reducer. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open the loop of the teardrop pendant you created in step one, same as you would a jump ring. Attach it to the center link in the chain, so it hangs from the bottom of the center link. (See photo). Close the loop.
  6. Open the loop of the leverback earring, same as you would a jump ring and close it around the top loop of the strand reducer, with the leverback facing back. Close the loop.
  7. All done!
