How to make chandelier earrings:
Chandelier earrings add a classic touch to any outfit. You can adjust the length and style of the earrings to suite your personality and outfit. You will need some chandelier components that are available in a wide variety of styles.
Each component will create a different look even though you use the same beads as shown below.
What you need:
- 2 earring wires
- 2 chandelier earring components
- beads or crystals of your choice
- 20g or 22g wire
- round nose pliers
- wire or side cutters
- safety glasses
Make both earrings step-by-step together. Follow the steps for making a double eye pin using one crystal bead as described on the page

Again open the other loop of the double eye pin with your round nose pliers, and slide the top of the chandelier component onto the loop. Close the loop completely.
Take 3 headpins and slide one crystal onto each headpin. You can add a small spacer bead for the central headpin.
