Rising Sun Earrings

About this design:

When I first saw these new component pieces from Lipstick Ranch, I had visions of fringey focals and earrings. Of course, when they came in how could I not dive right in and make a pair?

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Clip the head off the gunmetal head pin. Using this piece of wire, wire wrap a link at the top of the chandelier drop w/ one etched round druk 6mm.
Make sure to have your loops in opposite directions so that your earring will hang forward facing when worn.
Step 2:
Create your pattern for each of your bead chains.
When you make the first link that connects to the chandelier make sure to make your loop larger enough to fit through the hole and hang nicely. (TIP: If you don't have a wire to match the chandelier, I like to use TierraCast's gunmetal headpins and just snip the head off.)
Make a series of wire wrapped links finishing each chain with a wire wrapped charm.
