  1. Chain Earrings - Open a 9mm jump ring, position it 9cm along a 16cm length of fine chain and attach to an earwire, so two lengths of chain hang either side. Make five short drops, each one holding a fruit slice with a green seed bead each side. Use a 9mm jump ring to attach each dropper and an acrylic leaf to the chain, at random intervals. Repeat to make a pair.

  2. Make it yours - Create earrings by threading head pins with a citrus slice and seed beads, then attach to earwires.
