Chain II: Earth Tone Orphans DIY Tutorial
I had a collection of earth-tone “one-of-a-kind” beads, better known
as the ”orphans”.
Each of the beads has some interesting detail that I loved and could
not bear to part with.
I always had the idea of using all of the beads together in a long chain
As the beads were big, the chain links had to be big too.
The organic shapes of the forged and stamped thicker gauge oval links, in
sterling silver, went well with the large beads.
The twisted copper wire jump rings added color and textural interest
to the metal components of the chain.
The tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file, it has 6 pages, 18 photos, a life size template of all the components and plenty of tips! For beginner skill students.
