Pearl Swag Earrings

About this design:

These earrings have an unexpected swag shape and dangle at just the right length. I used shell pearls for a classic look. These would be perfect for your wedding day or any evening event.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need a 6mm of shell pearls, (2) 3mm jump rings, ear wire, 22 gauge wire (at least 2.5" per earring), and 5" of tiny flat oval silver chain.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Gather your supplies. Cut you wire to two 2.5" long segments. Also cut your chain into four 1.25" segments.
Step 2:
Slide 3 pearls onto each piece of wire. String one wire end through the end loop on the chain.
Step 3:
Create a loop by using your round nose pliers and then wrapping wire around 2-3 times. Check out our Tip and Technique to learn how to create a bead link.
Step 4:
Repeat Step 3 on the opposite side.
Step 5:
Add the jump ring to connect your chain ends. Then place onto your ear wire.
