About This Project

The stars are aligned perfectly for these galactic cup chain earrings. I added a curved tube with a Swarovski bicone on each end to mimic a shooting star's path. The dangling cup chain a tail of the stars path!

I will be connecting cup chain, so please view: How to End Cup Chain Video.

  1. Cut (2) 3" pieces of the cup chain.
  2. Attach a cup chain end to one end of each of the 3" pieces.
  3. Drop a 4mm Bicone on a 3" head pin, the curved tube, 4mm bicone wrapping a small loop on the end.
  4. Attach the tube drop to the closed jump ring with a 6.5mm jump ring.
  5. Attach the cup chain drop to the closed jump ring as above with a 6.5mm jump ring.
  6. Using another 6.5mm jump ring, slip it through the jump ring with the curved tube drop on it and close.
  7. We are now going to hang the combined drops from the last 6.5mm jump ring added from the earwire by simply slipping it on.
  8. To complete the pair, repeat the above steps, but remember to place the tube drop so that it's curve is opposite.
  9. Since you are only using 6" of the cup chain in the above instruction, you can make that part of the earring longer for a more dramatic look!
