Gold Link Chandelier Earrings Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

These earrings only look elaborate; they are actually a fairly simple way to make a chandelier earring with a big impact!

Step one: Prepare your two Swarovski hyacinth 6mm bicone pendants by stringing one on an open round gold-filled jump ring, the other on an open round gold-plated jump ring. Attach the bicone on the plated jump ring to the center loop of an antique gold trinity link. On the outside loops, you will want to attach the bottom loops of an antique gold melody link. There are three loops on this link, two are on one end, one on the other, hang these upside down from the single loop. Make sure they are facing each other so they form a modified circle for the bicone pendant to hang in (see photo). All the linking will be done with open gold-filled oval jump rings.

Step two: Where the melody links meet in the middle, attach one gold-filled open jump ring to each of the center rings using oval jump rings. Attach both of those rings to one ring of an additional link (see photo). On the bottommost loop of that link, attach the other bicone pendant.

Step three: Attach the entire earring to the earwire using an open gold-plated jump ring. Repeat steps for the other earring.

Tip: You can substitute the antique gold keepsake link (GA-3062), tudor link (GA-3065) or almond link (GA-3067) as a replacement for the trinity link if you prefer.
