Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with a 2" piece of 24 gauge wire. Make a loop at one end (see the attached tip). Cut 12 pieces of chain, ranging from 1.5"-2" long. Slide the pieces of chain onto a jump ring & attach the jump ring to the loop at the end of your piece of wire.
Step 2:
Slide the bead cap onto the wire and make a loop at the top.
Step 3:
Use the headpins & seed beads to make bead charms. Attach the charms directly to the ends of the chain. I made the charms different lengths, so you'll need to cut some of your pieces of chain to be shorter, so all of the strands end up being close to the same length after the beads are attached.
Step 4:
Finish by sliding the top loop above the bead cap onto an ear wire.

    Wow, these earrings are stunning! All the strands of gold chain really ‘pop’ the color on both ends–from the top Cloisonné bead caps to the bottom seed bead dangles. Gorgeous!
