Materials:

 1 pair sterling earwires
 2 – 2 1/4‖ pieces sterling chain
 14 sterling headpins
 12 4mm beads
 2 6mm beads

Steps:

1. Attach chain to earwire by opening loop gently to the
side, slip a link of chain in, then close. I like to hang
the chain at different lengths, about ¾‖ – 1‖ on one side
and 1 ¼‖ – 1 ½‖ on the other side.

2. Add beads to the headpins and make loops over each bead. (Follow the instructions for basic earring for how-to on making loops.)
