Project Description:

It doesn't get more classic than Swarovski crystals matched with clean silver components, in my opinion.  I gravitate towards simpler jewelry and I always feel good about making a piece that goes with everything.  I adore these crystal rondelles, especially with the AB coating.  I kind of want to make a larger, more daring version of these using the 18mm crystal ab rondelle and some chain with larger links!  

This project requires knowledge of drop beading. If you are new to this technique, please watch our instructional video

Instructions:
 

  1. Use your nipper tool to cut 8 links of chain.
  2. Place a 12mm rondelle on a headpin with 6mm rondelles on either side of it.  Above the bead, use your wire looping pliers (or round nose pliers) to create a small loop.
  3. Connect the loop to the bottom link of the 8 links of chain.  Then, wrap the wire around itself a few times and trim the excess wire.
  4. Use your chain nose or round nose pliers to open the eye of one of your french wires. Hang the chain from it and close the eye.
  5. Repeat for a matching earring.
