Retired - Raining Chains Earrings

PROJECT E3039
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Add some drama to your jewelry collection by making these edgy, long drop earrings featuring chain, Fuchsia findings and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal beads in Jet Black and Rose.
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 the following lengths of Gunmetal Steel Round Rolo Chain: 4 1/4", 3", 2 3/4".
  2. Next, cut the following lengths of Antiqued Silver Plated Cable Chain: 4 3/4", 3 3/4", 4 1/4".
  3. Using your chain nose pliers, open up a Fuchsia jump ring and slide on a jet black SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS rain drop pendant. Also slide on the last link from your 3" gunmetal chain length. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open up another Fuchsia jump ring and slide on the last link from another chain length. Also slide on a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Rose pendant bead.
  5. Repeat this step with the rest of your chain lengths and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pendant beads in Rose.
  6. Open up a jump ring with your chain nose pliers and add on the last links from each of your chain lengths.
  7. I added my chains in this order: 3" gunmetal, 2 3/4" gunmetal, 3 3/4" antiqued silver, 4 1/4" antiqued silver, 4 1/4" gunmetal, 4 3/4" antiqued silver. You can also add more or less chain, if you'd like.
  8. Open up the loop on your earring hook (how you would a jump ring) and slide on the jump ring that has your chain lengths attached to it. Close the jump ring back up.
  9. That's it!
