Retired - Ghost Cookie Earrings

PROJECT E7011
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
The cute ceramic beads featured in these earrings look like tiny ghost cookies -- the perfect reminder to have a yummy Halloween!
Instructions
Some of the holes drilled in the gemstone beads might be too small for the head pin to fit, but you will have plenty of beads that fit on the head pins to make this project. By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut a 1 inch piece of chain.
  2. String one gemstone bead onto a head pin. Make a simple wire loop.
  3. Open the loop of an eye pin, the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on the loop of the head pin from the previous step, then close the loop of the eye pin, so you have a gemstone dangling from the end of the eye pin.
  4. String one ghost bead facing upright onto the eye pin. Make a simple wire loop. Then open the loop and attach it to the last link of the 1 inch piece of chain.
  5. String one gemstone bead onto another head pin. Make a simple wire loop. Attach the loop to the second-to-last link of the chain.
  6. Repeat step 5, attaching a dangling gemstone bead to each link of the chain, except the top link. Repeat 10 more times so you have 11 gemstones dangling from the length of chain.
  7. Open the loop of an earring wire, the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide the loop through the top link of the chain. Close the loop.
  8. Enjoy your earrings!
