Chandelier Loop Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These earrings are easier than they look. You will need to know how to make a simple loop. For detailed instructions, please visit the handy tips section of the learning center.

Step one: Prepare the bottom of the drops by stringing five head pins with a random mix of Swarovski 4mm Tahitian colored crystal pearls, Swarovski 5mm rose faceted bicone beads, 2 and 3mm silver matte satin beads and 3mm sterling silver round beads. String one or two beads on each of the five head pins and finish with a simple loop. Duplicate these patterns on the remaining five head pins for the second earring. You will now do the same thing on nine of the eye pins, finishing each with a simple loop. Duplicate those for the second earring as well.

Step two: Cut nine or ten pieces of varying lengths of chain, make some very short, just a few links long. Duplicate the lengths for the second earring, and begin assembling!

Step three: To assemble the earrings, we find it is easiest to first attach a link or length of chain to each of the five loops on the hoop earring component and work down. Simply open the eye pins, add a chain, and add another link to the bottom. When you reach the desired length for each dangle, finish with a head pin link.
