Tanzanite Tassels Earrings Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Dazzle others with a design dripping with style! These quick and simple earrings leave a lasting impression with their subtle color and sleek dimension.

Step one:
Cut eight pieces of 925/10 silver-filled small oval cable chain approximately 3 inches long. Attach one end from each to a single 1.5-inch silver-plated 23 gauge eye pin by opening the "eye" portion with chain nose pliers and then closing.

Step two:
Thread one JBB antique silver-plated pewter double-sided textured bead cap and one Swarovski 8mm Tanzanite chessboard bead onto the eye pin.

Step three:
Finish the eye pin with a wrapped loop technique and attach it to one 925/10 silver-filled C-shaped earwire.

Repeat these steps to create the second earring.
