How To Make a Beaded Chain

Last week I posted a tutorial to turn chain into a necklace and afterward had a few requests for how to make a chain. This is an easy and quick way to make your own bracelet or necklace chain with beads, eye pins and jump rings. Find a little time and you can make as much chain as you could ever need!

Materials:

Beads. Eyepins. Jump Rings (not pictured)

Instructions:

1. Thread a bead onto an eyepin.

2. Fold the pin 90% to the bead and cut 1cm away from the hole.

3. Turn a loop in the end of the eye pin as shown here.

4. Do this a whole load of times!

5. Use jump rings to link all of these beads together until you have a chain the length you require.
