Geometric Chevron Earrings Tutorial
These geometric, simplistic, edgy metallic long chain earrings feature double spike Swarovski crystals! The attention-grabbing, lightweight earrings look like a million bucks but, they are actually very inexpensive and easy to make.
Created by: Sondra Barrington
Add a spike bead and 1 of each size heishi bead to a head pin. Make a wire wrapped loop. For looping instructions, and best way to open and close loops, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
Punch 1/16" holes at the ends of the Chevrons.
Cut two approximately 2" pieces for the beaded spike dangles. Cut two approximately 5" sections of chain, and fold each in half, running a jump ring through the middle link of each. For maximum movement and dazzle, use small jump rings to attach all components.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are temporarily out of production (TOP). We are actively looking for replacements, and hope to have good subs for the missing parts, available SOON!
Before attaching the copper chevrons, use the Ultra Polish pads to bring the copper blanks to a high shine. You'll be amazed at what these little workhorse polish pads can do!
