Free Chile Pepper Earring Tutorial
Some Like it HOT!

 

 

 

 

For one pair of earrings, you will need:

 

  • 2 – 2” long pieces of small curb chain

 

Tools:

 

2 pair of chain nose pliers

 

1 pair of wire cutters

 

Directions:

 

Hold a jump ring with 2 pair of pliers, as shown in Figure 1. 

  

 

Twist the jump ring in opposite directions so the jump ring opens. 

 

Put one pair of pliers down and put a red chile on the jump ring.

Put the jump ring through the bottom link of the chain,

and using both pairs of pliers, close the jump ring. 

 

Repeat with a yellow chile (also on the bottom link)

as shown in Figure 2.

 

 

           

 

 

Working your way up the chain, putting 1 chile in each link

and alternating colors, add an orange, a green,

a red, a yellow, a green, an orange, etc. 

Repeat these steps with the other piece of chain.

 

 

 

 

At this time, be sure each completed length of chain is the same.

You may easily do this by dangling them side by side

on a headpin. Clip off any extra links.

 

Open the hang loop on an ear wire and

attach to the top link of one of the chains.

 

 

 

 

Repeat with other ear wire and chain to complete your pair.
