These earrings are chandelier earrings with five bead dangles each.  This jewelry making project is an advanced beginner's project.  The earrings are relatively easy to make given a grasp of the basis skills like making wire components on a WigJig tool, making a loop and finally the skill for converting a conventional loop to an eye loop. This project uses a Figure 8 connector to connect between the ear wire and the earring body.  A jump ring or split ring could have been used instead of the figure 8 connector if desired.
