Designer Tips

  • Cut 4 lengths of chain, each 4 links long.
  • Use 4.5mm jump rings to attach chain to the top holes of the crescent link. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
  • Add two rondelle beads to a 5mm jump ring and then link the top of the two chains together and attach to the earwire.
  • Use a 5mm jump ring to suspend an 8mm crystal pendant between the two beads on the jump ring attached to the earwire.
  • Use another jump ring to suspend the 10mm crystal pendant from the bottom loop of the crescent link.
  • Repeat for other earring.
