February Meeting

Chain, Chain, Chain

Presented by Karen Meador

Long necklaces are “in” and you can create your own chain and bead necklace at the February meeting. We will work on various types of chain links, make jump rings and utilize beaded links. If desired, participants will shape a wire pendant and embellish it with charms and beads. For those familiar with these techniques, disks may be purchased for a nominal fee and embossed. These can be added to the chain.

Bring:  20g, 18g, 16g and 14g copper wire

26g copper sheet or about 4 copper disks

Metal hole punch

Metal cutting shears

Beads (for bead links)

Charms (optional)

Flush cutters

Chainnose pliers

Bail making pliers

Bench block and hammer

Head pins for pendants


Karen will have extra supplies for a nominal fee if you don’t have something on the supply list. If you need all the metal or wire, please email her so this kit can be put together for you ahead of time: Karen@dreamcatcherranch.net.
