Clementine Earrings Instructions
Designed by Teri McCamish

Like a refreshing citrus splash in your summer drink, these earrings quickly cool down style with sleek, silver chain and just a short burst of color. With just a handful of components and simple steps, you can create these earrings as a quick last-minute addition to an outfit!

Step one:
Cut one piece of 050 rollo chain approximately 5 inches long. Fold the chain in half and attach the center loop of the chain to the loop on the 4mm ball post earring.

Step two:
Thread one 8mm orange CZ round bead onto one ¾ inch sterling silver 24 gauge eye pin and finish with a simple loop.

Step three:
Attach each simple loop to each end of the chain. Add the earring back.

Repeat these steps to create the second earring.
