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 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 Estimated time: Less than one hour
