925 Sterling Silver Chain,Semi Precious Black Agate & Black Onyx Dangle & Drop Earrings Earring Size - 2.5 Inch Agate - 12mm Onyx - 6mm Chain - 2.2 mm I made these dainty earrings with a 1/2 round 20 gauge sterling silver wire. I balled the wire to make a headpin in order for it to hold the beads. After making a small loop I attached a 1 inch sterling silver chain to which I connected a ear wire. I also made the ear wires using a half round 20 gauge SS wire. Making these long earrings for real fun! They could be worn in the day as well for an evening occasion. And would be a lovely addition to your jewelry collection as well. A lovely gift to give someone special too! These earrings will come in a cute pouch. Enjoy browsing the pictures!
