Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Onto 1 head pin string 1 gemstone bead and 1 bead cap. At top of cap bend wire over at right angle. Use wire cutters to trim to about 3/8", then use round nose pliers to form simple loop. Repeat. Set aside.
Step 2:
Cut chain into two approximately 2" pieces, with each segment having an odd number of links.
Step 3:
Open 1 oval jump ring and attach to one side of festoon link. Before closing add end link of 1 chain segment. Close jump ring.
Step 4:
Open 1 oval jump ring and attach to other end of chain, then to other side of festoon link.

Tip: When attaching chain to second side of link pick up the festoon to let the chain hang straight down, then bring the end up to attach to the loop. This will ensure that the chain is not twisted.
Step 5:
Open round jump ring and attach at center of festoon. Before closing attach 1 gemstone dangle. Close jump ring.
Step 6:
Open ear wire loop and attach to center link of chain, paying attention to which side of festoon will face forward.
Step 7:
Repeat Steps 2-6 for second earring.

    Nice use of the festoon links. I wasn’t sure how to use these. Using chain is perfect!
