Step 1

Gather your supplies

Step 2

Cut and prepare the chain

Cut 2 matching lengths of link chain.  I used 3 links in my design.  Slide the chain onto the earring component to attach it. Separate the loop on the earring component using pliers, and then push the loop back closed, fastening the chains securely.

Step 3

Attach the beads

Next we will attach the beads on the chain.

Slide the beads onto your headpin, and make a round loop with your round nose pliers.  Slide the loop onto the chain, then close the loop.   If you need help learning to make a loop, follow these instructions.

That's it, your swingy new chain earrings are ready to wear!
