Summer Festival Earrings

About this design:

I love this colorful enamel chain and it looks great paired with the enamel teardrop focals.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need: - 2 enamel teardrops (I used peacock green) - 1 ft of teardrop enamel chain - ear wire - 2 jump rings

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
First I cut my chain into pieces. I cut two 2.5" and two 1" length cuts of chain.
Step 2:
Next, I start to attach the chain to the ear wire using the jump rings on the chain. I folded the chain up and then attached it, this creates the layered look. There will be some bars on the chain without little teardrops, just add them back on if needed with wire or a 21-20 gauge jump ring.
Step 3:
Attach your enamel teardrop with a jump ring to one of the bars from the chain. Try to center the teardrop.
Step 4:
The completed earring. Use the rest of your cut chain to do the other earring.
