Water Droplet Earrings Tutorial

Created by: Liz Graf

Designer Tips

  • Cut 8 links of your selected chain.
    I deconstructed and used part of a gunmetal chain tassel, or you can use 8 links from some scrap antiqued brass cable chain.
  • Hook Briolette to one jump ring, attach to one end of the chain, and close securely. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
  • Open the loop of an ear wire.
  • Attach a jump ring to the other end of the chain, close jump ring securely, and add to the open loop on the ear wire.
  • Next place the brass pendant onto the loop, in front of the chain, and close the ear wire loop.
  • Repeat process for second earring.
