In Chains

About this design:

Playing around with another variation of a Five Minute Earring. Beginning with a 4 inch piece of wire,then threading on small beads and chain. They are not yet where I want them to be, but an interesting start. Final product will be for a friend who loves long and dangly earrings.

    I really like the drape of the first set, almost lacey feeling, but I like both of these designs.

    I’m partial to the first one as well, regarding how the chain lays. May switch out the chain on the other one to a finer chain.

    Neat ideas! Would make great “on-the-spot” crowd gatherers at a craft fair or other community gathering. Bet you’d sell ‘em as fast as you can make ‘em.
