Copy Cat

6 Oct

I saw a bloggers post several days back and she had these awesome chunky chain earrings on and I was really curious where she had bought them, but then I was walking through Michaels today and their jewelry section had what looked like identical chains for sale, so I couldn’t resist and snatched them up. I thought I would attempt to make them myself and share the steps with you in case you want them to!

All you need is:

Any chain you like
Earring hooks
Straight or Looped pins.
Jewelry Pliers
Jewelry Cutter

(If you’ve been making jewelry for a long time, forgive my lack of professional names and steps.)


Here’s the chain, earring hooks and pins I used.

Step One:

Cut chain to desired length (also don’t buy these little pliers and cutters that I’m using, they’re terrible. My good ones are at home in Texas)

Step Two:


Snip off circle end


Stick pin through chain

Step Three:


Using pliers, twist pin into a figure eight

Step Four:


Open bottom of earring hook and attach to top of figure eight. Close hook and Ta Da! You got yourself a new pair of rockin earrings!

Step Five:


Put them on and dazzle the world!

P.S. They probably look heavy, but awesomely enough, they are very light weight.
