My name is Rebecca and I blog over at My Girlish Whims
My blog is all about beading, crafting, and general life as a girl!
I'm so excited to be taking part in the jewelry making series because jewelry making is my FAVORITE craft to do. I'm actually doing my own series of jewelry making lessons over on my blog right now! Check out my jewelry making lessons to learn about some of the basics!
Today I will be showing you all how to make a pair of silver chain earrings!
Chain, earring hooks, two link beads, two small jump rings, needle nose pliers and wire cutters.
Step 1: Cut a piece of chain around 2 inches long using wire cutters
Step 2: Cut a matching length of chain. An easy way to make sure your chain is the same length is to string the chain onto a piece of wire and then cut a matching piece.
Step 3: Cut around 6 or 7 more pieces of wire in varying lengths (do this for each earring).
Step 4: Open up a small jump ring and carefully string all the pieces of wire onto it.
Step 5: Add the link bead onto the jump ring and use needle nose pliers to close the jump ring.
Step 6: Open up the other side of the link bead using the needle nose pliers again.
Step 7: Add on the earring wire, and then close the link up using the pliers.
Make your matching earring, and then you are done!
These earrings almost remind me of tassels. So fun!
I'd love for you to stop over to my blog and say hi! Thanks for having me here Meg!
