Chandelier earrings are timeless! If you love jewelry as much as I do, this tutorial is perfect for you! Learn how to make the most stunning and elegant pair of chandelier earrings. There is no doubt that you will get tons of use out of these magnificent earrings!
To begin, cut a piece of wire 57cm (22 inches).
First, slide a seed bead onto the wire. Then do the same with a crystal. You will need 5 seed beads with five crystals in between.
Slide all 10 beads to the middle of the wire. Then take one side of the wire and slide it through the last crystal bead to make a loop.
Once you have created that loop, take the piece of wire on the right and slide on a seed bead and then a crystal, another seed bead, and then a crystal. Do the same with the wire on the left, only this time add an extra seed bead on the end.
Take the piece of wire on the left, thread it through the crystal bead on the right side and pull.
Time to add more beads! With the wire now on the right side add a seed bead, a crystal, a seed bead, and another crystal. On the left side do the same but add another seed bead at the end.
Once again, take the left wire and thread it through the last crystal on the right and pull. Repeat this beading process one more time.
Now it’s time to hide and cut the wire. On the one side, thread the wire through the last seed bead and crystal.
Thread the wire around itself three times at this point. Use your pliers to help you pull tight but be as gentle as possible so as not to damage the wire.
Use your pliers to then cut that end of the wire.
Do the same with the other end of the wire. Start by sliding it through a seed bead and crystal. Then thread it around itself three times and cut.
Before attaching the chains, create the center bead by putting one crystal on a pin. Bend the wire with round nose pliers. Then cut off some of the wire with pliers. Pick up your round nose pliers and create a small loop of wire.
Next, take a jump ring and open it. Place a long chain on the ring, then a shorter one, and then another long one.
Also, add the clasp to the jump ring. Once everything is on, close the jump ring.
It’s time to attach the beaded element to the chain. First, open the small chain.
Attach the single crystal bead and close the chain.
Take another two jump rings, open them up and attach them on either side of the beaded element. Then attach each side to one of the two chains.
