Step 14: Once you have the chain connected to the earring body and to the ear wire finding on top, all that remains to complete this earrings is to take five 6mm beads and five head pins and make bead dangles, hanging a bead from each of the bottom loops in the bottom wire component. Instructions for a bead dangle with an open loop can be found here and on the following page, while instructions for making a bead dangle with a wrapped loop are found here and on the following two pages. When completed your earrings should appear as shown at right.
The earrings shown at left are an alternative design for making these earrings. This alternative had three modifications to the basic design. The first and most noticeable modification is that the chain segments on either side of the earrings are 2" long instead of 1 1/2" long. This makes these earrings more dramatic and obviously longer.
The second modification is that the brace was made with a loop in the middle so that only two beads are required on the brace and the loop, causes the two beads to remain fixed in position instead of sliding around. You can view the peg pattern for making this brace at right.
The third modification shown in this earring is that the beads at the bottom are 4mm instead of 6mm. Both 4mm and 6mm beads work fine and it is personal choice which is best.
On the following web page, we will discuss one other alternative design for our Chain, Jewelry Wire & Beads Earrings.
