Last night I decided to make myself some earrings. I've made earrings before - including some as gifts for my sister and sister-in-law this past Christmas - but never this particular variety. I didn't have instructions; I just looked at a pair I owned that I liked and copied them, using lengths of chain, beads, and head pins. I strung a bead onto each head pin, looped the metal with needle-nosed pliers, hooked each loop onto a link of the chain, closed the loops tight, and trimmed the excess. I think they turned out cute!
