Step two: Thread a 16mm Swarovski chessboard bead in Jet onto a 24 gauge sterling silver 1-inch eye pin and finish with a simple loop. Step three: Attach a 0.8mm ball end ear wire to one loop the chessboard bead and the dangle from step one to the other loop. Repeat steps one thru three to make the second earring.
