Retired - Happy Panda Earrings

PROJECT E2104
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
These happy little panda ceramic beads swing from gemstone chain in these whimsical earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. String one panda bead onto one headpin, with the bottom down. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside.
  2. Cut 1 1/2 inch of gemstone chain so that you have a cluster of three at the bottom and a single link at the top. You should have 4 main links, meaning that if you count along the length you will have 4 links, not counting the baubles.
  3. Open the simple wire loop of the panda bead, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the side of the gemstone chain with the cluster of three. Just find a center link to attach it to. Close the loop.
  4. To the other side of this gemstone chain, attach the earring hook by opening the loop, same as you would a jump ring. Close the loop.
  5. All done!
