Steps to make this project

Step 1

Cut your chain into the following lengths – 2x7cm, 2x6cm, 2x5cm, 2x4cm, 2x3cm, 2x2cm and 2x1cm.


Step 2

Add a fire polished to a headpin, trim off the excess wire leaving 1cm above the bead. Using round nosed pliers, turn a loop down to the top of the bead. Make sure that you cut roughly the same amount off each time, this way your loops will be the same size.


Step 3

Open a loop and add to the bottom of a piece of chain, close the loop again. Remember to open the loop by twisting towards you, not pulling the loop open. Repeat to add a bead to the end of each length of chain.


Step 4

Using one of the cut off pieces, turn a large loop at the base of your round nosed pliers.


Step 5

Open this large loop and add the chain in this order – 1cm, 7cm, 2cm, 6cm, 3cm, 5cm and 4cm. Close the loop.


Step 6

Add a 4mm fire polished to the top of the wire and turn a small loop.


Step 7

Add an ear wire.


Step 8

Repeat to make the second ear-ring.
