How to Use Wire to Make Cup Chain Bezels

By on Wednesday, March 08, 2017 2 Comments

Like bling?  There is nothing like adding crystal cup chain to bezels to get that sparkle! I've covered the beadwork cup chain tutorials before (see links below). This easy tutorial by Holly of The Potomac Beading Company uses wire instead to connect the cup chain around a large top drilled bead.



The result looks like the bead is surrounded with diamonds as in high end jewelry!

  1. Looks quite fiddly to start but once you get going it's just a matter of getting it seated and tight enough around the bead.

    Interesting idea.

    1. A bit of painter's tape can help hold the chain until the wrapping is far enough along.
