On the Edge Designs

In our newest “On the Edge Designs” we give you a simple design that can be made several different ways with just a few minor adjustments.

First the original, Stainless steel orbital tube bead 2-2 chain

19mm SS clasp

SS Tube Beads 

16g SS 5/16 jump ring (for clasp)

18g SS 3/16 jump rings (1 extra to attach clasp)

16g SS ½ jump rings

 

Basic construction- open one large ring, scoop two small, close all three, weave a second large ring through the two small rings and close.  Thread the two small rings through the center of a rondelle bead.  Open a large ring and weave through the two small rings without going through the rondelle.  Add two small rings to the large ring and close.  Weave a second large ring through the same path.  Continue on until chain is desired length.

 

For a little twist, literally, increase the 18g 3/16″ rings to 18g 13/64″, and you can mobius the large rings.
