Cut two 16-link pieces of the 2mm rose gold-plated brass cable chain and join them together with a 1/20 14K rose gold-filled 3mm 22 gauge open jump ring. Add another 3mm jump ring to one end of chain and connect the chain to the loop on the B&B Benbassat 7.5x22mm rose gold-plated brass daisy link. Repeat for the other end of chain on the other side of the daisy link. This is the top chain of the earring.
Cut two 10-link pieces of chain and join them together with a 3mm jump ring. Connect the ends of this chain to the daisy link in the same manner as the previous step. This chain is the lower part of the earring.
Wrap KO nylon Japanese beading thread in natural around the long end of a business card or a similarly sized piece of cardboard or a tassel maker. This will become both tassels for your earring. Make sure not to make it too thick. You can add in other colors of thread if you like; we added a few strands of KO nylon Japanese beading thread in copper. Tie off the wraps at each end and then cut them in half. Add a 1/20 14K rose gold-filled 4.5mm 22 gauge open jump ring to the bend then bind the tassel with copper thread. Trim each tassel to your desired length.
Connect a tassel to the jump ring at the center of the bottom chain on the earring using another 3mm jump ring. Open the loop on the 1/20 14K rose gold-filled ball end earwire and add it to the jump ring at the center of the top chain. Close the loop. Repeat steps one, two, and four to complete the other earring.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
