Retired - Summer Festival Earrings

PROJECT E1099
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Bright and bold, these dangly earrings bring to mind summertime and being outdoors. They'll give your favorite resort or boho look a special touch.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. On the long sides of a oval bezel cup, locate the two center loops on each side. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to bend these loops out so that they sit flat. Then, on one side, bend out the next two loops to either side to give you six flattened loops on this side.
  2. Apply a dab of glue to the back of the turquoise glass cab and press it into place in the center of the bezel cup. Allow the glue to set for at least 30 minutes before continuing.
  3. Cut the following lengths of rhinestone cup chain: two pieces 6 links long, two pieces 7 links long, and two pieces 8 links long.
  4. Add a cup chain end to each end of all six pieces of cup chain.
  5. Use a jump ring to hang a mini dagger bead from one end of each of the six pieces of cup chain.
  6. Use a jump ring to hang each chain dangle from one of the six flattened loops on the bottom side of your bezel cup.
  7. Attach a jump ring to each of the two flattened loops on the top side of your bezel cup.
  8. Place a third jump ring through the last two and through the loop on an earring hook; close the ring.
  9. Ensure that your earring hook is completely closed.
