Project Instructions

Thread a 4mm crystal bicone onto the long earring wire and form a wrapped loop. *Be sure to attach the loop to a chandelier before wrapping the loop closed. Repeat for the second earring.

Cut the following chain lengths: (4) 1-1/8", (8) 1-¼", (8) 1-3/8", (8) 1-½", (2) 1-5/8".  
Group the chains into the following groups using 4mm jump rings, making two of each group. Group 1: 1-1/8", 1-¼", 1-3/8" and a 1-½" chain.
Group 2: 1-¼", 1-3/8", 1-½", 1-5/8", 1-½", 1-3/8” and a 1-¼" chain.
