Here’s how to make chain tassel earrings at home using multiple lengths of lightweight chain for a low cost stylish and elegant look.
I love making homemade earrings and this is another great way to use up those leftover beads, wood, resin, glass, and shells. Various shapes and sizes can be mixed to create these fashionable unique earrings.
Supplies You Will Need:
- 2 Jump Rings – Jewelry Findings
- Length of lightweight chain (about 12 inches) – Jewelry Chains
- Selection of Jewelry Beads
- Bead caps (optional) – Jewelry Findings
- Earring wire – Jewelry Findings
How To Make Them:
Step1 String the beads onto the eye pin in your preferred sequence.
Step2 You will need to create a loop in the eye pin just above the beads so that it can be attached to the ear wire. (See the basics of how to make homemade earrings for a step-by-step guide).
Step3 Carefully open the ear wire and slip on the beaded eye pin, then close it up again.
Step4 Cut the chain into six 2 inch pieces.
Step5 Open a jump ring and thread on three of the chains, then hook it through the loop at the bottom of the eye pin before closing it up.
Step6 Trim the chain to the required length and repeat the processes for the second earring.
Try threading a seed bead onto the ear wire and jump ring for an interesting look
