Copper Connection Earrings

It is no secret that I love copper. Using 3 different styles of rings, I was able to create a pair of earrings that is fun and fashionable while still being simple enough to wear every day.

Shanna Steele, Auntie's Beads Designer

Instructions:


1. Cut your chain into a piece containing 6 links. Place the 13mm round link inside the 20mm round link. Wrap the piece of chain around those 2 links. Open a jump ring. Attach it to each end of the 6 link piece of chain. Attach the 10mm link to that jump ring before closing it.

2. Attach a jump ring to the 10mm link. Close the jump ring. Attach a jump ring to the jump ring just added. Close the jump ring.

3. Open the loop at the bottom of the ear wire. Attach the loop to the last jump ring added in step 2. Close the loop.

4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to create your other earring

Customer Reviews
Easy, versatile earrings!
I've made these several times now for different people. They are so easy and look great. Definitely recommend to beginners or someone wanting a nice pair to go with their browns.
