Using just one simple technique - opening and closing jump rings - you can create this gorgeous pair of dangling cluster earrings.
These earrings use a length of chain as the base for all the dagger beads to dangle from creating the cluster. It will take a little patience to attach all the dagger beads but the finished earrings are well worth the effort. Make these your own by swapping out the blue and green shades with the colours of your choice.
