Tuesday Tips and Tricks!

I love our Golden Moss Earrings and wanted to make my own version of these sparkling earrings. The leaf chain featured in this design has two little leaf charms attached to each closed link of the chain. As I cut my chain to size I realized I had two loose leaves for each cut. Don’t throw them out – instead use my trick to make the most of this fun chain!

Use Your Left Over Leaf ChainAdd the trimmed leaves back into your design for an even denser look or save them for another fun project. I used jump rings to add some of the leaves into my earrings for a fuller look. I also wanted to make a matching necklace, so I added the leftover leaves to a delicate chain to tie these two pieces together as a jewelry set.
