Retired - Elsa Earrings

Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
The ornate oak leaf charm chain used in this design has wonderful movement and shape to it. The design is simple to make but looks more complex because of the multitude of delicate charm dangles and the striking Czech glass focal bead at the base.
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Place onto a head pin 1 Czech glass table cut window bead in turquoise. Create a simple wire loop after the bead.
  2. Cut a 1.5" length of copper charm chain (9 links). When you cut this length, several charms will fall off. Keep these charms for use in a following steps.
  3. Onto the last chain link, attach the bead with simple wire loop from the first step.
  4. Open the loop at the base of your earring hook (the same way you would open a jump ring). Link onto this open loop one of the charms that came off when you cut your chain and the chain piece from above with the dangle at the bottom. Close this loop back up.
  5. All done! Enjoy.
