So Many Chandel Earrings Tutorial – Wire Working Techniques

You may as well call me OptionsRUs, ‘cause I’ve done it again! This chandelier earring pattern is a refresh of a Now That’s a Jig! pattern template with three elements and three options to wrangle those three. So, you may think, “Yay!” 27 different styles!” But (sorry!) you’d be wrong—in a good way!

Think of using these lovelies upside-down or sideways too; and that doesn’t even count your wire color and/or embellishment choices. For this go-round (and so we don’t blow your mind too, too much), we’ll limit the metal to Aluminum, the gauge to 18; and the colors to Green Apple and Fuchsia. And, since it’s Pearl Month here at Brenda Schweder Jewelry, we’ll accent with these lovely John Bead Czech Glass Pearls in 8mm. How ‘bout that for a Pearl Grand Finale!?
