Supplies and Tools
4. Cut chain into 14 pieces 1"(there may be a very tiny chain left but we are losing one ring each time we cut, so do not cut them longer).
5. Slide one chain then one ball onto the hoop alternating till you have 7 chains and six balls on each hoop. Do not worry if the wire gets a little warped, you can reshape it on the shot glass if needed.
6. Now make a loop on the other end that goes around under the other loop and close it.
7. Add your DIY ear wire and you have a pair of real rock and roll earrings
