Amethyst Cascade Earring Tutorial
Necklace ends can be used for things other than securing multistrand necklaces. This project uses necklace ends as a design element in cascading chain earrings.
Amethyst is February's birthstone, making this a great February birthstone gift. (Other color options below.)
Created by: Amy Mickelson
- Cut chain into the following lengths: 2 pieces each at 2.5", 2.0", 1.75", 1.5".
Design Option: Cut the chain pieces all the same length.
- Use an oval jump ring to attach a crystal navette to the end of each chain.
- Use jump rings to attach the other end of the chain pieces, in a cascading order to each of the loops on the necklace end.
- Connect an earring post, clip-on or other earring finding to the top loop of the necklace end.
