Periwinkle Crystal Earrings

These dainty crystals earrings are perfect for a glamorous night out! 
Materials: 4 and 6mm bicones, silver chain, earwires, headpins, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Thread a bicone onto a headpin, bend the top to a right angle, trim the excess, and begin the loop. Do not close the loop yet. Repeat with the other bicones. 
Cut the chain into 14 pieces, 2 each of 7 different lengths. My lengths range from 1 3/4 inches to 3/4 inches. 
Attach a bicone to each piece of chain, corresponding the chain length with the bicone size, of you are using two sizes of crystals like I am. 
Open the earwire loop. Attach 7 lengths of chain with crystals to the opened loop. I started with the shortest pieces, and went to the longest pieces. 
Keep adding the chain. 
Close the open loop to finish off the earring. 
Repeat to make the second earring. 
All finished!
Xoxo,  Alyssa
