Gianna Zimmerman of Beading 4 Perfectionists created some absolutely beautiful art deco inspired beaded jewelry tutorials with crystal cup chains. Wonderful example of cRAW (cubic right angle weave). She did a marvelous job of integrating the cup chain links to add sparkle into her designs. The stunning beaded ring tutorial (showcased on Potomac Bead Company) is my favorite! She cleverly adds beads to hold down the cup chain strand.
The earrings tutorial is over on her own channel.
Another way to add a little bling to beaded designs is to use 4 hole Swarovski crystal montees. See tutorials below.
