Step 7:  Open the initial and final loops and add a segment of chain about 1 to 1/12 inches long.  Count the links and be sure to have an odd number of links in the chain.  Be careful about the orientation of the links.  Make sure that the chain is not twisted.  Chandelier Earrings jewelry making project step 7 made with beads, WigJig jewelry tools, jewelry wire and supplies.
Step 7
Step 8:  Thread five head-pins onto five beads.  For these earrings I used 4mm Swarovski Bicone Crystal Beads.  (6mm beads could also have been used with a 2.5 mm metal bead instead of the 4mm beads.  If you use 6mm beads you will need the additional metal bead so that the beads hang down far enough to hang straight.)  Make a wrapped bead dangle and hang one of the 4mm beads from each loop in the wire component.  Chandelier Earrings jewelry making project front view made with beads, WigJig jewelry tools, jewelry wire and supplies.     Earrings jewelry making project made with beads, WigJig jewelry tools, jewelry wire and supplies.
Step 9:  Add an ear wire.  Connect the ear wire to the middle link in the chain.  Watch the orientation of the chandelier wire component.  You may need to orientate the loop in the ear wire so that the chandelier hangs properly.  This can be done by twisting the loop in the ear wire 90 degrees, or by adding a figure 8 connector so that the "chandelier" hangs properly. 

Step 10:  To complete this jewelry making project, make a second earring using the same steps.
