voila!  Made after I saw something like it in Elle (or Allure)

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/4131chandelier.jpg

on diagram, the bottom chain lengths on top are red, the ones underneath are yellow.

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/4131earring_tutorial.jpg

First cut chain to desired lengths.  I did:
top-  middle, 23 links
        others, 24 links

bottom-  middle, 50 links
             next, 47 links
             outer, 41 links

The bar is an eyepin.  Attach top chain (24 links) & botton chain (41 links) on the eye, close off eye.  slide 2 turquoise beads on the pin, then the next bottom chain(47), 2 more beads, another top chain(24), then the end of the first bottom chain, 2 beads, the bottom middle chain(50), 2 beads, another bottom chain(47), 1 bead, top chain(23), 1 bead, the end of the first bottom 47 link chain, 2 beads, the end of the 50 link bottom chain, 2 beads, the last bottom chain(41), another top chain(24), 2 beads, the end of the second 47 link bottom chain, 2 beads, bend the remainder of the eyepin into an eye & put the last top chain(24) & the end of the last bottom chain(41) in before you close it off.  Slide the ends of the top chains onto a jump ring.

Dangling beads:  put 5 turquoise beads onto 5 headpins, bend the end of pin into an eye.  Find the center of each hanging chain & attach a jump ring to that link, slide on one of the dangling beads & close off.
Hang the earring from a kidney earwire.  Slightly bend the eyepin bar up from the middle so the top chains slope (you can see in the photo the 2 inner chains are sloping.)
I hope hope hope this is thorough.  When you finish the first, the second is a lot easier because you'll be able to refer back to it.  If anone makes a variation of this I'd love to see it!

Thanks guys!  I bought a long length of chain at the bead shop, it would have been too much like work if I had to make a chain for this one   Wink  They took me a few (2?) hours only because I had to figure them out.  I had no picture to go by, I had only briefly seen something like them in a mag at the salon.  The second earring goes much faster.  When I went to look in the mirror with them on I found a jump ring in my bangs.   Huh
