Learn how to make your own Large Flower Earrings at home with this instructional tutorial and a few simple hand tools; no electricity, soldering, or studio required. This two-page PDF jewelry tutorial illustrates step-by-step how to set a tube bead onto a headpin wire with a precise ‘single-loop-around’ technique. Next, we will combine three beaded loops with a large-diameter jump ring into a simple beaded chain. Finally, we will add the second and third large-diameter jump rings in a consistently spiraling ‘bottom-wise’ pattern through the beaded loops and first large-diameter rings to complete these visually simple and delicately dangling shoulder-dusting earrings.
Please note that this listing is to purchase the digital PDF download only, and no physical supplies are included. This tutorial is a slight derivative from the project within my fourth published book: Chain and Bead Jewelry Soldering Connections.

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.

My first time buying a tutorial, and using jump rings to make jewelry. Because I'm so new, this took just a minute to make sure I was seeing everything correctly. The photos are very clear, and the use of different colored rings (copper) to show the current step was very helpful. I read it through twice and now am sure I can make this attractive bracelet! Thank you!
Immediate delivery and follow up from the seller. I especially love that the pattern uses different metals to clearly show each step of adding jump rings. Highly recommended!!!
Thank you. I had purchased a kit with links and instructions at a bead show, and had found the instructions very lacking. Not enough pictures and was unable to do the chain. With your instructions, with the great pictures and it being well written, I believe I can now actually do this chain correctly. Great tutorial, thank you so much!
Immediate delivery and follow up from the seller. The pdf includes very clear photos and instructions. And an unexpected bonus--after I added this pattern to my favorites, the seller sent me a coupon to use on the purchase! Definitely recommend this seller and these chainmail patterns.
