Retired - Harlow Earrings

PROJECT E3025
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
These dangly earrings feature antiqued silver plated filigree rectangle links accented by sparkly SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS beads in Black Diamond AB and Violet AB. They'll swing delightfully as you walk.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video on How to Create a Simple Wire Loop.
  2. Begin by cutting four 1" lengths of your chain with your flush cutters.
  3. Next, using your flat nose pliers, open up 6 jump rings.
  4. Take two of your lengths of chain and slide on an open jump ring onto the last link from one end of both lengths of chain. Before closing the jump ring, also slide on the loop from your earring hook. Close the jump ring with your pliers.
  5. Next, take another open jump ring and slide on the last link from the opposite end of one of the lengths of chain (the ones you just attached to your earring hook) and slide it through the top left hole on your filigree connector link. Close the jump ring with your pliers.
  6. Take another open jump ring and slide it onto the last link from your second length of dangling chain and also slide it through the hole on the top right of your filigree connector link. Close the jump ring with your pliers.
  7. Now repeat this same process with your other 2 lengths of chain and the two bottom holes of your filigree connector link.
  8. Now take the last two links from the two dangling lengths of chain and slide them onto an open jump ring, also slide on your pendant bead onto the jump ring through the two holes at the top of the bead. Close the jump ring with your pliers.
  9. Now that your chains are attached to your filigree connector link, you can now start adding bead dangles.
  10. Slide a headpin through a Black Diamond AB bead and create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers and snip off any excess.
  11. Repeat this step 7 more times to create a total of 8 bead dangles.
  12. Now take one of your beaded dangles and open the simple wire loop at the top (like how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the fifth chain link on one of your top lengths of chain. Slide another beaded dangle (in the same way) onto the 8th link chain. Repeat this process on your other top chain.
  13. Onto one of the bottom lengths of chain, open and attach a dangle to the 1st chain link and another one to the 6th chain link. Repeat on the other bottom chain length.
  14. Your earrings are done.
