Cut the curb chain into two lengths the size you want for your earring drops.
Connect the ends of the curb chain together with a jumpring for each earring.
Cut a long length of the jewelry wire. Thread one end into the jumpring holding the chain ends together for one of the earrings.
While holding the wire below the curb chain, thread the end of a long piece of the ribbon into the first link of the curb chain, wrap it around and below the wire, going from front, to back, and then to the front again. Keep the loop of ribbon loose until you pull the end back around and into the loop, then pull tight to knot the ribbon around the wire + chain link.
Weave the ribbon into the same link and towards the back, and down and around to the front again. One more time, loop it into the same link towards the back, but this time keep the loop loose, bring the ribbon end down and back around to the front, and into the loop. Pull tight to knot, and now move onto the chain link next to it.
Follow this weaving pattern through each link in the chain: ribbon in, loops around, knots, in and around again, and then in, loops around, and knots...and moves onto the next link.
By doing this you are not only disguising the wire below but are also creating a crochet-like look to the ribbon and the chain links.
Keep bending the wire around into a teardrop-shape as you follow the curve of the chain.
If you run out of ribbon, cut another long length of ribbon, and tie the new piece in a square knot with the piece that's just run out.
Pull the square knot into the looping-and-knotting pattern you've created around the inside of the earring loop.
Heat-seal the cut ends with an open flame and wrap them with the ribbon as you continue to weave and loop.
Once you reach the jumpring at the start of the teardrop, cut the wire (with about 1/2" to spare). Wrap the end of the ribbon around the jumpring a few times, and then trim the end and heat-seal it.
Wrap the ends of the wire around the ribbon ends so nothing gets loose.
Repeat steps 3) - 8) for the other earring chain piece.
Attach a jumpring and a french hook to the top of each chain piece.
