Chandelier earrings are simple and well-designed jewelry that add a very classic touch to your outfits and overall personality. The best part of these gorgeous drop earrings is that you can always adjust their length and style according to your personality and attire. For example, if you have long neck then you can keep the length of the chandelier earrings long. You can design them with various colors of gems / stones, keeping your requirement in mind.
Making your own chandelier earrings is fun and a very inexpensive project as well. Therefore, read the below simple steps and personalize your style with elegant chandelier earrings:
Things you will need to make Chandelier Earrings:
- Earring wires
- 2 chandelier earring components
- Beads or crystals of your choice
- 20g or 22g wire
- Round nose pliers
- Wire or side cutters
- Safety glasses
First of all, take a small straight piece of wire and insert a crystal bead into it. Now, make an eye pin on every side of the bead. Making an eye pin is a process of making loops at the end of wire, specifically designed for jewelry making purpose. It seems to be very simple activity but it requires proper practice.
Once you make a double eye pin, use round nose pliers and gently open one of the loops. Now, slide the earring hook onto the loop and close it properly.
Grab three small headpins and slide one crystal bead onto each of them, keeping the middle one large and the two side ones medium in size. Make sure to add a small space bead to the central (main) headpin –if you like.
Now, make a loop on the three bead added headpins, using round nose pliers. Making a loop is not difficult at all. Bend the first headpin clockwise, right around the nose of the pliers. Now, twist the tail of the headpin until it forms a perfect loop. Carefully remove the nose pliers and cut the excess wire with the help of a sharp side cutter.
Note: Always wear safety glasses in order to protect your eyes during the cutting process.
Repeat step 5 with the remaining two headpins to form a loop on them.
Open the loop of the central headpin with the nose pliers and connect it to the central bottom part of the chandelier earring component. Close the loop again.
Note: Do not open the loop too wide, otherwise; it will be distorted.
Repeat step 7 to attach the remaining two headpins to the right and left parts of the chandelier earring component.
Your beautiful chandelier earrings are all set to wear. Enjoy!
