Pattern Description:

This is a chain maille jewelry making project that uses combination of European 1 in 4 and Whirlybird techniques. It requires only basic supplies such as jump rings and beads. You can mix and match using different materials and colors of jump rings as well as beads to come up with many beautiful variations. The tutorial comes with pictorial step by step guides.

You can turn the Cabochon to a pair of earrings or pendant. Anyone has any idea how to turn it to a bracelet?
