Chloe's Bridesmaid Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

We made these earrings for Chloe to wear to Maggie's wedding, but they are so fun and summery, we feel they should be worn all summer long!

Step one: Cut approximately an inch of sterling silver 040 round link chain (11 links), loop it through a hammered sterling silver loop and attach it to a sterling silver earwire using an open jump ring to connect the two ends of the chain to the loop of the earwire.

Step two: String a 10mm pink shell flat diamond on a sterling silver head pin and finish with a simple loop. For instructions on how to make a simple loop, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the dangle to the bottom loop of the chain.

Step three: String two 6mm Swarovski faceted bicones on head pins and finish with simple loops. Add them three links above the shell bead on the chain.

Step four: Repeat for the second earring.
Approximate size: 2 inches
TIP: To save money, use leftover beads and chain from Chloe's clamshell necklace design.
Difficulty level: Beginner
