Shooting Star Earrings

PROJECT E2103
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Take off on a shooting star with these swinging earrings featuring a flat tag star charm by Nunn Design.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Cut 4 lengths of chain, 3 1/2 inches each.
  2. Open one 4mm jump ring. Take one length of chain and fold it in half. Take the center link in the chain and string it on to the jump ring. Add the other three chains in the same way. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open one 5mm jump ring and attach the 4mm jump ring with the chains, and the star tag charm, so that the chain is hanging behind the star. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open one 4mm jump ring and attach the 5mm jump ring and the earring lever back. You will want to make sure that the lever back faces the same side of the star with the chain behind it. This is the back. Close the jump ring.
  5. All done!
