Long Chain Dangle Earrings with Swarovski Crystal AB Sparkle
designed byBecky Dahl
TechniqueChain & Jump Rings
Approximate Size5 Inches
These earrings look like morning dew! The AB finish of the Swarovski beads glistens like water in the sunlight.
Swarovski crystals are the perfect accent for creating dazzling styles. These long earrings are a statement piece that are sure to attract attention. They're perfect for weddings, especially if you have an understated wedding dress. You can also pair them with a little black dress for an unforgettable night out. We kept our earrings long for the ultimate sparkle, but you can shorten them for a more casual take on this look.
Cut a length of silver-plated round links on round cable chain approximately 4 inches long. Attach a sterling silver white CZ lever-back earring to the top of the chain using a sterling silver 5mm 20.5 gauge open round jump ring.
Lay your chain out on your work surface and place 7-8 Swarovski 8mm faceted rounds in Crystal AB and 6 Swarovski 10mm faceted rounds in Crystal AB up and down the sides of the chain, to get a feel for where you will attach your beads.
Slide one of your beads onto a 2-inch 22 gauge sterling silver head pin and attach it to the chain, in the approximate location you planned out by creating a wrapped loop. Repeat for all of your beads. Make sure to hold up your earring as you go to check for spacing on your dangles. Becky likes to check before she completes her wrapped loop, so if she wants to adjust placement, she can just slip the dangle off of the chain and complete the wrapped loop in the desired spot.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
