Designer Tips - For Earrings
Suggested Supplies (for Necklace)
- Use the leftover chain from the necklace, and get 4 sections of 3 links ready.
- Arrange beads and crystals on eye pin, with pre-made loop at the top. Create your custom loop at the bottom, making it large enough for 2 of the chain sections to sit in.
- Add the links of chain, close the eye pin, and hook the other end of beaded eye pin to kidney ear wire.
- Optional: use round-nose pliers to slightly crimp the loop on the kidney wire, keeping the earring dangle secure.
