You may have seen P.S. I Made This DIY of Chanel's ombre chain earrings? I slightly altered Erica's tutorial and made my own super long ombre chain earrings. Erica used fishing line to thread the chain together. I used jewelry pins (either head pin or eye pin works).
ribbon clamps from Etsy and Blue Moon chain from JoAnns cut into 6" pieces
string your chain to the pin (it took about 8 6" pieces for each earring)
cut the pin to the desired length and round the end with needle-nose pliers
place the chain into the ribbon clamp and secure with pliers
Next, I used Krylon Flat Black spray paint (about 2 layers) to paint the bottom part. Do this outside. Let it all dry. Now you're ready to glue your earring posts to the back of the ribbon clamps. Let the glue dry and VOILA!
|I decided to adjust the length of each chain haphazardly to achieve the cascading look|
