Chain Link Earrings Part 2

Who doesn't love a simple pair of earrings. And, with just a few skills and materials, it's so easy to make your own in a flash. I created a whole collection of earrings inspired by the large links of chain I found in my stash. 


It was obvious to me that those chains would never work their way into necklaces or earrings. But, they might be perfect in some easy earrings. So, I've started a series of Chain Link Earring tutorials that work their way from easiest to harder. The two pairs of earrings in this second installment require just a few materials and some basic skills. 


The actual tutorial for this second part is a short YouTube video on How to Make Chain Link Earrings: Part 2


Here's a look at the two pairs that you learn to make in the video. 

This first pair involves hanging a bead charm inside the chain link.

I show you how to wrap the bead on the headpin and connect the ear wire.

Actually, those are the same two skills you'll use for the second pair as well.

But, in this pair, the bead is hung from the bottom so the wrapped loop is formed on the chain-link itself. 

Easily, these hanging styles and beads could have been swapped to make completely different-looking pairs of earrings. They're so simple that you can make a handful in no time at all. 

Please let me know if you have any questions about these tutorials I'm always excited to help other creators learn to create beautiful jewelry. 
Have fun!

    1. That's a great idea. I actually took the ones I made up to the booth at the antique store. I was running low on simple earrings there and wanted to bulk up the booth. I've got quite a few more videos in this series to go as they get "more advanced" in the techniques I use.
