As promised – the final installation in the 5-part saga of everything, well – a lot of what you need to know to make jewellery.
This week – the simple loop – as opposed to the wrapped loop of two weeks ago – the simple loop is great for light weight beads and where there won’t be a lot of abuse and tugging – i.e. earrings – which even I concede need to be fairly light in order to not permanently deform your earlobes.
And, as the simple loop is pretty simple, I’ve shown you how to make a pair of earrings, using simple loops, and also the jump ring opening skills you learned last week.
If you have everything else for these, but no chain handy- you can loop one bead into the loop of the next, and make your own chain of loops with beads hanging from them.
Have fun with it!
