I made some pretty sweet earrings over the weekend and can't wait for an excuse to wear them out on the town. I am a jewelry-making novice, so if I can make them...you can too! Here's how:
Cut 2 pieces of chain, 1 inch each. String 1 8mm pearl onto 1 headpin and connect to the first link on the chain with a wrapped loop. Repeat steps, connecting 1-2 pearls to each chain link. (I used 6mm and 8mm blue-ish and pink-ish pearls. See the technical terminology I use? I have no idea what their official names are.) Open the earwire loop using jewelry pliers and connect chain to earwire and close.
Have fun! Earrings are so fast and easy. A perfect little craft for the busy woman. I'm thinking about making a matching bracelet. Stay tuned. I had so much fun making these, the bracelet might actually happen!
