Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Remember to double all of the instructions in order to make both earrings. Cut a piece of star charm chain that is just under two inches long.
  2. Thread a red bicone onto a ball head pin and create the beginning of a wrapped wire loop. Make one more red bicone head pin dangle, two more using white bicones, and two more using blue bicones.
  3. Add these dangles randomly to your star charm chain, and then close up the wrapped loops and trim off excess wire.
  4. Open the loop at the bottom of your earwire and thread it through the last link of the star charm chain. Close the loop once more.
