Learn to make a pair of chain mail earrings as Karla Schafer, Auntie's Beads Designer, demonstrates how to by using jump rings.
Materials and Tools Needed:
Sterling Silver Jump Rings, Open, Bag of 10, 8mm, 20 Gauge Other jump rings, gauges and sizes can be used but it will change the appearance somewhat. 8 small beads or charms to fit on jump rings, I used Sterling Silver Round Mirror Beads, 4mm 1 pair of earwires Chain Nose Pliers Bead Smith Bent Chain Nose Pliers
This tutorial is pretty easy! I love the way these earrings fall, with one tier going one way and the next going the other way. They are simply beautiful. Thank you for this great tutorial Auntie :)

Fun to make
These were fun to make - and the video gives clear, easy to follow instructions - I have made two pairs of these now and they always garner compliments. And I used the same technique to make a bracelet - my new favorite.
