Retired - Silver Falls Earrings

PROJECT E1043
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
These dramatic earrings feature black components and beads with a shiny pop of silver among the chains, which hang from a D-ring finding.
Instructions
  1. Using a pair of flush cutters, cut four 2 3/4" lengths of antique silver plated fine cable chain and four 2 5/8" lengths of gun metal steel flat link cable chain. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to separate two 2 1/2" lengths of jet Czech fire polish beaded chain.
  2. Use a 6mm, 20 gauge black finish pewter oval jump ring to attach one length of silver plated chain to the first hole on a black finish pewter 5 hole d-ring. Use a jump ring to hang one length of gunmetal chain from the second hole. Use a jump ring to hang the beaded chain from the 3rd hole. Then use a jump ring to hang a second length of gunmetal chain from the 4th hole and use a fifth jump ring to hang a second length of silver plated chain from the 5th hole.
  3. Repeat the last step to create a second earring.
  4. Use a jump ring to attach the top hole on your d-ring to the loop on a black finish pewter dome post earring. Repeat to attach the second earring to another post.
  5. Place gunmetal plated earring backs on the backs of your posts.
