Venus Drop Earrings
Add some swing to your step with the Venus Drop Earrings. Long chain and a spike charm give edge to this glamorous accessory.
- chain nose pliers
- metal clippers
- silver earwires
- cable chain
- jump rings
- silver teardrops
Gather your tools and materials.
Using your clippers, cut two pieces of chain that measure 2-1/4" long.
Open four jump rings. Open them one at a time using your chain nose pliers. Twist them open by pushing one side north and pulling the other side south. Never open a jump ring by pulling east to west. This will make it very hard to get them back into shape and close them completely.
Place one teardrop finding onto an open jump ring. Also add one piece of chain by sliding on the last link. Close the jump ring by twisting back in the opposite direction as before (south to north).
Place another open jump ring through the one we just closed and place the loop of the ear wire on the open jump ring.
Close the jump ring and you've completed the first earring. Repeat steps 4-6 to make the second earring.
These lightweight slinky earrings are sure to help you beat that summer heat!
