Box Chain Maille and Crystal Earrings Tutorial Has a Neat Finishing Detail

By on Saturday, March 31, 2018 5 Comments

Adding a crystal or bead at the bottom of a simple pair of chain maille earrings is one easy way of adding a bit of color to the design.  I like this box chain maille and crystal earrings tutorial by Kylie Jones for a couple of reasons.  Firstly, box chain - which is a simpler Byzantine modification - is easy to do.  One which beginners can tackle.

Secondly, the crystal is a side-drilled one.  So a larger jump ring had to be used to attach to the chain maille dangle.

This designer also hung smaller jump rings on either side of the top of the crystal.  It is a small detail but still a neat one because these rings not only add visual interest but also hide the side drilled holes.
