Deco Chandeliers Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Chandelier earrings can be made in a multitude of ways. This fun Deco style makes a unique finished product.
Step one: You will work from the top of the earrings to the bottom. Begin with two head pins and an eye pin. The eye pin will be in the center. String a silver plated spacer bar on all three, holding them together. If the pins come through the holes of the bar, place a daisy spacer on the pins before stringing the spacer bar.
Step two: Follow the spacer bar with daisy spacers on each pin, then aqua, crystal and aqua Swarovski faceted cube beads, another daisy spacer and a spacer bar. You will then add the 3mm sterling silver round beads and another spacer bar. Add daisy spacers and a crystal, peridot, crystal faceted cube, then daisies and another spacer bar, repeat both the round layer and the cube layer one more time (using the aqua/crystal/aqua pattern). When you reach the bottom, finish each pin with a simple loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please see the handy tips section of the learning center.
Step thee: String three head pins with a daisy spacer, Swarovski 9x6mm teardrop crystal, and another daisy spacer. Attach a finished dangle to each of the bottom loops using a simple loop in the head pin.
Step four: Link the finished assembly to the earwire by attaching a closed jump ring to the top loop of the component and the loop on the earwire. Repeat the process for the second earring.
