Subtle Sparkle Earrings Tutorial
These earrings are extremely light weight, but provide a lot of impact.

- Cut chain to desired length. I used two sections of 2" and two sections of 2.5"
- To easily cut chain to equal lengths, run a pin or wire through the last link of desired length chain and of remaining chain section, hold upright and easily see which link to cut.
- Add bead and bead cap to head pin, and wire wrap directly to chain. I used "messy" wrapped loops on these dangles.
- Twist open loop on earwire and add chain dangles and acetate drop in desired order; close loop by twisting shut.
- For basic wire-wrapping instructions and more, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
