Tools

Instructions

  1. Cut 6 1/2 inches of wire. Round ends with wire rounder.
  2. Make a loop at the end of the wire and hold against mandrel (lip balm in my case)First Valentine TogetherLine Break
  3. Wrap around the mandrel (or tube of chapstick) until the wire meets. Take round-nose pliers and loop the wire back on itself.

  4. String your crystals or beads on the wire, then continue to wrap around the mandrel until it meets the other wire again. Loop the wire back on itself as before and wrap around the mandrel.Double Spiral Chainmail Weave EarringsLine Break
  5. Trim if necessary to make a loop in the end of the wire. You may need to pinch the wires together to prevent the crystals from sliding, or even put a wrap in the ends if needed. I put a little kink at the end of the crystals to hold them in place.Double Spiral Chainmail Weave Earrings

  6. After you’ve pinched the wires together, you may need to size the ring. Try them on your toe and make adjustments on your mandrel. Multiple sizes can be made and each ring can easily be adjusted.

    How cute! I don’t think I’d wear a toe ring (sensitive) but I’ll bet my neices would. The technique looks a lot that used by like ear cuff.

    Thanks for the sharing. My granddaughter loves toe rings. I will be able to make her several now.
