Gemstone chip earrings

What can you do with a lot of gemstone chips lying about? I bought a lot of these chip strings as I used them for my tree of life pendants, but I never seem to use all the chips ever. I have most of them sitting in this nice box just tucked away in my drawers!

I did some research using Google Images to see what people made. Seems the chips go well with ball end pins so I ordered in three different colours of pins. I decided to make earrings with them and used about 14 chips per single earring.

For these amethyst chips I matched them with silver findings, but I find that amethyst can work with gold too.

I made a few matching jump rings for the chips to attach to. You want the chips to be on either side of the connecting ring so that it cascades neatly, otherwise it will be lopsided.

The earrings did not take long to make, so I ended up making extra pairs!

I also paired sunstone chips with rose gold findings, and green fluorite chips with gold findings. You can use your own colour combinations, but I liked these the most!

Materials: amethyst chips, sunstone chips, green fluorite chips, ball end pins, wire, earring hooks
