About This Project

Quick and easy earrings with a splash of flash and can be worn casually or dressed up. Using chain and Swarovski elements in colors of gray and Crystal AB ensures that these ear rings can be worn with an array of items in your closet.

Judy Mertz, Aunties Beads Designer

I will be making my own earwires, so please view: How to Make Earwires Video.

  1. Remove 2 rings from hooped chain and remove 1 inch from the chain with leaves. Open the leaf chain top ring and close over one of the rings from the hooped chain.
  2. Cut two 2 inch pieces of 20 gauge wire.
  3. On each 2 inch piece, make a loop on one end using the round nose pliers. Be sure to mark the spot used for the first one so that you make both loops the same size on the second one.
  4. Add one Crystal AB and one Gray Pearl bead to each 2 inch piece with the Crystal AB bead placed first so that this bead is next to the loop you just made.
  5. Secure the end of the 2 inch pieces by making a very small loop and turning it so that the loop is circling the bottom of the Gray pearl.
  6. Open the top loop and attach each completed piece to the top of the hooped chain. These will be attached to the ear wire once completed and will keep this element in place so don't worry that the element doesn't stay at the top if moved at this point.
  7. Once your ear wires are completed according to the video, attach the bottom part of the ear wire to the loop you made and attached to the top of the hoop chain.
