Retired - Hematite Cluster Earrings

PROJECT E3045
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Create these dangly Hematite and Silver Czech glass drop cluster earrings and add a little shine to your look.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut a 1 inch length of your silver plated rolo chain.
  2. Using your chain nose pliers, open up the loop on a silver plated Bali style earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide it onto the last link from one side of your length of chain. Close the loop back up.
  3. Now you will begin adding on your Czech glass tear drop beads using jump rings. I have added mine in no particular color order, but each jump ring has 4 beads. Try to balance the hematite and silver colors throughout your design.
  4. Using your chain nose pliers, open up a 8mm silver plated jump ring and slide it onto the last link from the other end of your length of chain. Also slide on 4 beads and close.
  5. Next, open up that second jump ring (that you just added) and slide on 4 beads and close.
  6. Open up another 8mm jump ring and slide it onto the last jump ring. Also slide on 4 beads and close.
  7. Repeat the process of opening up an 8mm jump ring with your pliers and sliding on 4 beads and closing. You should have a total of six 8mm jump rings connected to one another when you're done.
  8. That's it!
