Making Bead Link Chain
by Susan LeGuyader
Making your own bead link chain makes your whole piece your own. It's a lot of repetitive steps, but it's worth it!
Instructions
Making bead links means cutting a lot of wire and making a lot of wrapped or simple loops. You can take this shortcut to make the repetitive steps move along much faster. Cut all of your wire length at the beginning of your project, it will allow you to move quickly from link to link, increasing your productivity. If you're making simple loops, you can even make the first loop on each length of wire first, and load the beads.
