Chain Link Earrings Part 4

Making a pair of earrings is as simple as adding a charm to a set of ear wires. But, creating a pair of interesting earrings means looking at your materials in a new way. I had a lightbulb moment when pulling out some metal chain and realizing it was too large for my delicate style of necklaces. Instead, I envisioned a whole line of earrings. With that vision, I set to work. 

And, to help inspire you, I popped on the video camera to share the process I used to work up each of these earring pairs. I've already shared three of those videos. Here's the DIY Chain Link Earrings Part 4 video to set your wheels in motion. 

And, these are the earrings I make in the video tutorial.

I lucked up in finding teardrop links AND beads, but really you could use any bead and link combination for this technique as long as the bead fits inside the link.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about this tutorial or any other jewelry-making. I'm always more than happy to help!


  1. I love the teardrop earrings :) I also love the possibilities to make mismatched earrings with chain links by just moving their position. I love asymmetrical but don't make many because during shows there always is someone to delicately whisper "you know, these two earrings don't match" :) :) :)

  2. Great use of repetitive shapes and antique silver colour to create unity. Did you make any earrings with the textured links that you had?

    1. Thanks, Divya! As for the textured links, I shared a pair of earrings in the first video (my introduction video) that used some textured links. But, those were the only ones I made for this series. I've got so much chain, I'll likely go through and make another set in another couple of months. Mostly, I was making these to bulk up my earring assortment at the booth I have. It did the trick! :)


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
