Take your fashion for a ride with these fun and fast earrings! The draped chain adds a surprising dimension and the long, elegant silver chains are appropriate to pair with jeans to dress up an outfit or to complement an evening look.
Step one: Cut nine strands of 050 rollo chain approximately 3 inches long. Cut one strand of 090 rollo chain approximately 3 inches long.
Step two: Attach one 0.5x2.3mm sterling silver open jump ring to each 050 rollo chain strand and attach one 0.90x3.90mm sterling silver open jump ring to one end of the 090 rollo chain strand. Watch our Handy Tip video to learn how to open and close a jump ring.
Step three: Connect the jump ring on the 090 chain to one heavy sterling silver earring back. Connect the other end of the chain to one 4mm cubic zirconia post earring.
Step four: Connect the nine 050 strands to the middle of the 090 chain with their jump rings, evenly spacing them so they span across one inch.
Repeat these steps to create the second earring.
