  • How to make a chain earring. Metal And Fine Chain Earrings - Step 1
    Step 1

    Step 1. First cut two lengths of your fine chain 6cm long and set to one side. Then cut a length of wire about 10cm long and start to make your loop. About 3cm from one end of the wire wrap tightly around your round nose pliers and thread on your metal shape.

    Step 2. Taking the loop and your flat nose pliers in one hand and the other end of the wire in the other hand, wrap the wire in a clockwise direction creating a closed loop.

    Step 3. Repeating steps 1 and 2 make another loop, close to your first and thread your chain. Close the loop as step 2.

    Step 4. Repeat on both sides and on both metal shapes so you have your chain connected to your shapes.

    Step 5. Making another loop, thread on your chain and shape and close the loop using the above wrapping method. Thread your bead and make another wrapped loop. Repeat for the other earring.

    Step 6. Gently open the loop on your earring stand thread your "decoration" onto the the stand and close the loop.
