This two-page PDF jewelry tutorial illustrates step-by-step how to set beads onto headpin wires with a single-loop-around technique, and then assemble the beaded headpin wires into the repetitive Inca Puño chain by replacing every fourth ring with a beaded headpin to create a seamless beaded chain pattern.

Although I am protective of my copyright, I do allow individual artisans my permission to sell the finished jewelry design to clients or through consignment art galleries, all I would ask is that you list ‘Designed by: Scott David Plumlee, Handcrafted by: your name’. However, this permission to sell my original jewelry designs is limited to individual artisans who are handcrafting a limited quantity to support their hobby and does not allow for the bulk selling of machine-made, mass-produced replicas of my original jewelry designs.
Inspiring others with my passion for handcrafting beaded chain jewelry is the goal of this Etsy store, and I hope it encourages people to discover the quiet meditative practice of assembling jump rings and spark their curiosity to seek a creative adventure.
