About This Design

Time:  Approximately 30 minutes

Level of Difficulty:  Beginner - All Levels

Cost: Varies, depending on materials selected.  Approximately $15-20 as shown.

Use some gold filled earring components, shown here in a fan shape, to craft some eye-catching earrings.  I used chain and topaz Swarovski crystals to accent these gold danglies.  Fun to wear!

Want to make these earrings, or a variation for yourself?  Let's get started!

Step 1

Gather your supplies

  • 2 Swarovski crystal beads in your choice of colors, shapes and sizes. I used 8mm round topaz beads in my design.  Add more crystals to your design if you like!
  • A length of gold-filled wire (thin gauge to fit through bead holes)
  • 2 gold earring findings of choice - here I used a fan shaped component I found at my bead store--any component you like will do as long as it has a hole (for attaching).
  • 2 earwires, french hooks, leverbacks or posts (your choice)
  • Length of fine gold filled chain

Step 2

Cut chain to length

Decide how long you want your earrings to be.  Cut six equal lengths of chain for the bottom "fringe" (3 chains on each earring), and two lengths for the top chain (1 per earring).  TIP - You can add or remove chains to your own design until you are pleased with the overall design.  You can also add smaller crystal beads to the bottom of each chain if you want more sparkle.


Step 3

String crystal beads onto headpins and attach component to chains

Take a length of wire (a few inches) and make a wire loop.  Attach the loop to the top chain, and make a closed wire loop.  If you need help learning how to do wire loops, follow these step by step instructions.  Slide the crystal bead on the wire, and at the bottom of the crystal, make a wire loop.  Slide three lengths of chain, and your fan earring component onto the loop, then close the loop.
