DIY Colorful Chandelier Earrings

Happy Tuesday my sweets!
I hope you are up for another jewelry tutorial.
My last diy earrings post was a hit, so I knew I had to create another.
Luckily Ive had a few ideas for new diy earrings to share!
Today I will be showing you how to make your own COLORFUL chandelier earrings!
 Here are the things you will need:
Everything here you can find at any craft store or even Walmart!
 First up, to color your chain simply paint it with your favorite finger nail polish.
I will tell you, this is the first time I have ever colored chain with nail polish.
There is no easy way to do it and it took some time to completely cover it all.
You need to be careful not to GLOB it on.. it will cover the holes.
Just lightly sweep it on, let dry and then try your best to rotate the chain.

The chain will stiffen up while its still damp, but once its completely dry
the chain will go back to its normal state.
 Next, while your chain is drying you can start the earrings.
Take one of your eye pins and stick on a few seed beads, one briolette bead and then a few more seed beads.
You can see there is still a lot of excess left on the eye pin, you can cut it down with the wire cutters.
Then create another eye loop to close it up.
 Next step is to cut your chain.
You will need to cut two long sections and 4 slightly smaller sections.
 1. Using flat nose pliers and two jump rings attach one long chain and one small chain to each side of the beaded eye pin. 
2. How they should look when step one is complete.
3. Attach the last small chain to the top of the beaded eye pin with two more jump rings.
4. Find the center of the top chain and attach your earring hooks with a jump ring. And then you're done!
 Now you have got yourself some gorgeous colorful chandelier earrings!
Wear and listen to all the compliments you get. ;)
Then proudly proclaim "Thanks, I made them myself!" hehe
 And just for fun... here is a sneak peek at tomorrows what I wore post:

 What color would you make your earrings?
These are SO simple, and could be made with endless color combinations!

PLEASE share YOUR finished earrings with me, if you try this tutorial.
