Earrings with Cultured Freshwater Pearls, Sterling Silver Beads and Chain and Antiqued Sterling Silver Bead Caps

Earrings

Step 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the following lengths of sterling silver 1.5mm rolo chain:
  • Two 1-3/16 inch length
  • Two 7/8 inch lengths
  • Two 3/8 inch lengths
Repeat to cut two 3-1/2 inch lengths of sterling silver half-round 24-gauge wire.
Step 2
String onto one sterling silver 2-inch headpin one sterling silver 8x5mm bead cap and one 8-9mm white potato pearl. Form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a sterling silver and white potato pearl drop.

Repeat to create a second sterling silver and white potato pearl drop.

Repeat to create four sterling silver and peacock potato pearl drops.
Step 3
Using round-nose and chain-nose pliers, form a wrapped loop on one end of one 3-1/2 inch length of sterling silver wire. String onto the wire one sterling silver 7x3mm scroll tube bead. Create a wrapped loop on the opposite end of the wire forming a sterling silver scroll tube beading link.
Step 4
Open one sterling silver 4mm round jumpring and pass it through the first link on one each of the three different lengths of chain and one loop on one sterling silver scroll tube beading link. Close the jumpring.
Step 5
Open the loop on one sterling silver 17mm angular earwire and pass it through the opposite loop on the sterling silver scroll tube beading link. Close the loop.
Step 6
Open one sterling silver 4mm round jumpring and pass it through the last link on the 1-3/16 inch length of chain and the loop on one sterling silver and white potato pearl drop. Close the jumrping.
Step 7
Repeat to attach one sterling silver and peacock potato pearl drop to the last link on the second and third lengths of chain.

Repeat Steps 4 - 7 to create a second earring.
