Adventures in jewelry making

Ball Chain Change Up… October 25, 2016

Filed under: Archives — Fresh Baked Designs @ 4:26 pm

I was inspired by another jewelry artist from Button Up Beads by the unusual way she used ball chain and rhinestone chain in her eclectic, edgy earring designs.  I had purchased a spool of ball chain long ago and had no inspiration on how to use it…until now.  It was great fun wire wrapping and decorating these simple brass rings purchased in bulk from Michaels.  I love the lacy look that the ball fringe and wire give these earrings…a more romantic flare.

 

 

Add a small cluster of Czech glass flowers

Or random groupings of gold and lavender

Or my favorite, faceted pale blue glass

beaded-brass-ring-5

These last two are just more wired up fun…

And I’ve still got scads of ball chain to play with!
