These are dangly earrings that make you want to gently shake your head!
Choose from a wide variety of colours of Swarovski drops or Unicorne teardrops for the bottoms. These are very easy to create—and would make a lovely gift—if you can bear to part with them!

You start off with 1 jump ring linked to the next as you make a mini-chain (you decide how long). Then you add 2 rings to each chain link so they just hang loosely. Finally, you finish it off with a special drop bead. Voilà!

Students Will Bring:
Eyeglasses or magnifiers for close-up work.
Pliers designed for chain mail will be provided for class use, but you may wish to bring your personal tools.

Kit Includes:
Step-by-step, illustrated directions, Argentium sterling silver or copper jump rings, 2 Swarovski crystal drops or Unicorne teardrop beads, and Sterling silver or copper/titanium ear wires. All rings are saw-cut and polished. Makes one pair of earrings.

Class Fee + Kit Fee:
$28 for Argentium Sterling
$22 for Copper
