I made a whole bunch of these great little earring sets when I was hanging out at home the other night.  I had my husband snap some photos as I was putting them together so I could throw together a little tutorial as well.  I'll give you guys the abridged version.

Here's the earrings, one of my favorite designs.


For a pair of earrings, you'll need the following supplies:

2 pairs of pliers, i have flat nose and needle nose here
10 small jump rings, I used 4mm here
18 large jump rings, I used 6mm here
Seed beads large enough to fit on the large jump rings
2 wire ear hooks



Link together 5 small jump rings for each earring.  Attach these chains to an ear hook.  Add beads to opened larger jump rings.


Attach one beaded jump ring to the bottom link of the chain by twisting closed tightly and cleanly.  Add two beaded rings to each remaining bead going up, on either side of link as shown in photo.


Make lots of pairs.  Wear them with everything!

Let me see your rhumba earrings everyone!  Bonus points for action shots!

For anyone who needs more detailed instructions, I have a more in-depth tutorial on my blog at http://www.theartofmegan.com/rhumba_earrings_tutorial.  I can't wait to be getting more jewelry making tutorials up there soon!

Awesome!  I was looking for an idea for my cousin's birthday present.  This is a great one!  Thanks so much!  I might make her a complete summer set using your earrings as a center piece! Grin

Those are beautiful, I think I'm going to make a set to go with the chainmail set I'm making for my niece.
