By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. The supplies listed include an extra inch of the gemstone chain. You'll need this to make up for lost links when the chain is cut.
  1. Find one of the cut ends on your chain and cut away the link that's been cut through. Keep in mind that this might take a couple of connected dangles with it.
  2. Measure 1.5" and find the closest join in the chain. Then cut away the next link, ensuring that you cut only the next link and not the last link in your 1.5" piece.
  3. Use a pair of chain nose pliers to open the loop on a sterling silver ball post earring. Slide on one end of the chain by the loop at the end of the first link. Close the earring loop.
