Retired - In Flight Earrings

PROJECT E3005
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This cute earring has a space shuttle bead hanging off of a dainty chain. It's super fun and swings delightfully when you wear it.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Begin by cutting 2 inches of your chain using your flush cutters. This cable chain has a silver ball detail, so be sure to cut the wire leaving one silver ball and a larger link on either end. You may need to remove a few links leaving your chain at a little under 2 inches when you're done. Set your chain aside.
  2. Take your headpin and string in order: 1 SWAROVSKI crystal silver night bicone, 1 SWAROVSKI light turquoise bicone, 1 shuttle bead, 1 SWAROVSKI light turquoise bicone, and another crystal silver night bicone.
  3. Once all your beads are on your head pin, take your round nose pliers and make a simple wire loop. Snip off any excess using your flush cutters.
  4. Open your loop (the same way you would open a jump ring), slide on the last link of your cut chain piece and close your loop back up.
  5. Next, open up the loop on your earring hook (like you would a jump ring) and slide on the last link from other end of your chain.
  6. Close the loop with your chain nose pliers. Your earring is now ready!
