Infinity Link Chain with Beads

Infinity Link Chain Bracelet with beads from Lisa Yang's Jewelry Blog

Everything's better with beads!

Thank you for all the positive comments on my Free Infinity Link Chain tutorial.

I'm glad that so many friends found it useful - and also that the Jewelry Making Journal posted it for their free tutorial Friday on Facebook.

That made my day - since I love JMJ!

I also love when someone sees one of my ideas and expands upon it.

Deborah said in a comment at JMJ that she tried the tutorial and added red seed beads to the jump rings.

So, I had to try it too!

This was simple, if not a little frustrating to do - I just added a single seed bead to the jump ring after putting on the links.  I added the seed bead last so it will cover the opening in the jump ring after it's closed.  My jump rings are oval, by the way, not round.

Here's my version, with size 8/0 picasso seed beads.  I think it turned out great - but I haven't decided on a clasp yet.  I think I'd like it to have a few beads too.

Anyone have any ideas you'd like to throw out there?  Let me know in the comments.
