Remember to double these instructions to create your matched pair of earrings.
- Use a pair of flush cutters to cut a length of silver plated drawn oval cable chain that are each 16 links (about 2", but count the links) long.
Take a 4mm dark sapphire crystal bicone bead and place it onto a silver plated 1", 22 gauge head pin. Make a simple wire loop after the bead. Repeat with three more dark sapphire beads, then with four sapphire beads, then with four light sapphire beads, and then with four crystal beads, for a total of 16 head pins with beads.
Use the simple wire loops to hang one head pin from each link in the length of chain. Hang the head pins each just to the side of the one hanging from the last link so that they hang in a spiral. Start with the dark sapphire beads, then hang the sapphire, then the light sapphire, and then the crystal beads.
Use a 3mm silver plated jump ring to hang the top link (on the darker end) from the ring in a silver plated ball earring post.
Place a silver plated earring back onto the back of the earring post.
Choose beads in various shades of a different color to give your earrings a different look.
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.

Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
