Designer Tips

  • Cut chain pieces to desired length.
  • Slip the chain ends under the last rhinestone links on each end of the rhinestone chain, and use chain-nose pliers to fold the prongs over the edges of the stones.
  • Use oval jump rings to attach the chain to the ear cuff and loop on ball post.
  • New to jewelry-making? For most secure way to open and close jump rings, see: Basic Jewelry-Making Technique Sheet (PDF)
