Free Project Idea From Make-It-Take-It At Bead and Button Show!

9:00 AM


Another Bead and Button Show has come and gone. Again, we taught a free make-it-take-it project in the front lobby. Since some of you could doubtlessly not be there, I thought that I'd go ahead and share the instructions on the blog for you today. 



To get the chain links for this project, I took one of our long lengths of chain that are on closeout for 60% off and snipped my favorite links free. Each strand of chain is different, but I was able to get about 16 pairs from one length of chain. That makes a pair of links for a pair of earrings only $0.66! Talk about affordable!!!!

Please note that you can use any beads. You can use Czech glass as shown in the project, or you can upgrade to a gemstone or a crystal.
