Why not make chain the star of your earring designs? It works beautifully as fringe in these long, feather earrings. Silver looks great with dark hair and adds accents of flash against light hair, too!

When making earrings, there are so many ways to get creative. You can create simple dangle earrings by stringing beads onto head and eye pins, or you can try making bead weaving creations to showcase in earrings. Add a single charm to an earwire for quick earrings. Cynthia created long, dangling chandelier earrings by using long lengths of chain to add feather charms to a chandelier finding. You can see more of these earrings and learn more about our designers' process for making earrings in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
