Creating jewelry with cup chains

Creating jewelry with cup chains

When you want to create a new jewelry item with a line of crystals and other elements, the Cup chain for bracelets is a great thing to use, you can make many different jewelries with it. As you will see in this tutorial for creating earrings, bracelets and necklaces with this cup chain.


When working with a long piece of cup chain, it is very easy to cut it into smaller pieces that are at the exact size you may need for creating your new jewelry item.


Here you can see two very basic and functional tutorials for working with cup chain that is sold by the meter:
1. How to connect end loops at the end of a cup chain
2. How to connect two parts of cup chains together

 

EARRINGS:
It is very simple to make earrings with a piece of cup chain, because you only need to connect it to an earring base, if it is a casting element, a metal flower, or any other basic base with a bottom loop.
The larger cup chain like 12mm Rivoli would be a bit heavy with crystals in the, so don’t make them too long. The 39ss and 29ss cup chain can be used to make a wonderful long crystal earring.

 

 

BRACELETS:
Creating bracelets with three or four stone settings of a cup chain, leather, fabric cords or metal chains on either side, would not be very expensive item and they look really great!
You can also create your own style of a wraparound bracelet. Here is a bracelet with two different metal chains on either side of the cup chain, and same metal embedding elements in the center, you can easily make any kind of bracelet you like with this cup chain.

 

 

 

NECKLACES:
The first thing to know about the bracelet cup chain when you want to make a necklace, is that it can’t be in the center of the necklace, because it doesn’t bend as the cup chain for necklaces base. So the bracelet cup chain is used only as a kind or a connector.
So you can connect small pieces of cup chain on the sides of a necklace or to a pendant and make a nice v shape for the necklace.

 

 

The cup chain for bracelet is one of these things that you can really use for making many different things. So have fun creating!
