DIY – Earrings with long chains and zirconia

Created on

Earrings and earstuds with a chain are elegant and simple to make yourself.

Shown below are a series of exampled for inspiration. All jewelry supplies are available at, but resevations are made for products no longer in stock.
It’s practical to have both Chain-Nose pliers, Round-Nose-Pliers and Flat-Nose pliers at hand when you begin.

øreringe med kæde og zirkonier

Make your own long chain earrings. In the examples, the following materials have been used:
1 pair of gilded earstuds with ball and eye 
2pcs. cubic Zirconia stones, 7x5mm, oval
10cm cable chain dublé, AR30 12 cm
Gilded dublé wire in either 0,4mm or 0,5mm

Take approx. 6cm dublé wire and create an eye on each side of the bead or pearl. When you create the eye, you connect with respectively the chain and the eye of the earstud before you spin the wire and secure it. This way there’s no use for jumprings to attach the parts together.
