These Anthropologie chandelier earrings cost a whopping $300 in the store. This DIY project will cost you hardly a thing especially if you already have some of the supplies. Use gold or silver wire. Use any color of glass bead that you prefer or use more than one color. Make the hoops big or small. There a lot of options with this earring design. Thanks to Delightfully DIY for the idea.
I was browsing around the Anthropologie website the other day and came across these fabulous Tri-Loop Chandelier earrings. I hardly ever wear large earrings, but these are just so pretty they just pulled me in. Unfortunately, I don’t have an extra $300 lying around to spend on a pair of earrings I would love, but not wear very often. So – I decided I could make them.
Since I’ve been trying to work on beading projects that use supplies I already have, and I had some gold wire and earring hooks I decided to use gold instead of silver like the original pair.
You will need:
212 – 3mm cut glass black beads
4 – gold head pins
12 – tiny gold jump rings
gold beading wire (I can’t remember which kind this is, but just make sure you have something sturdy enough to hold it’s shape)
2 – gold earring hooks
Start by putting one bead onto one of the head pins and securing it by making a loop with the wire at the top, cutting off any excess wire. (If you’re unsure how to make the loop here is a quick tutorial from Fusion beads.) You’ll need two of these for each earring.
