Another fab statement tutorial fresh from the Jewelry From Home making table. After sharing our statement necklace tutorial a few weeks ago we decided use up some of the extra beads to make these gorgeous statement earrings. Using such bold means we needed less beads to make a really punchy piece of jewelry and the best bit is they are really quick to make.
Materials - Chunky chain, 1.8cm oval faceted beads, crystal tear-drop beads, 8mm facted round beads, 4mm jump rings, head-pins, earring hook
Step 1. Cut a piece of chain either 3 links or 1.5cm long. Thread a round bead onto a headpin, make a loop and fix to the base of the chain. Using the excess wire make another loop thread on the oval/statement bead and make another loop to fix. Fix the the chain to one end of the statement bead.
Step 2. Cut another piece of chain 9cm long. Add a round bead to one end and the tear drop bead to the other using a head pin, creating a loop.
Step 3. Measure 6 links or 4cm from the pink bead and fold the chain in half. Using a jumpring fix the statement bead to the chain.
Step 4. Add a earring hook to the same link you fixed the statement bead too, repeat to make a pair.
There you have it, really simple earrings that make a statement. If you want something individual then try using vintage chain and beads for something really unique.
