About this design:

This is my ABS July challenge entry .
I used Lima Bead chain .I love this chain !!!I wanted to use the extra links to join the various elements However, this chain had soldered links. Good news!
I carefully cut the links with my sharpest wire cutter . I was able open and shut them just like regular jump rings ! I didn't have to search for jump rings to match the chain !
m.e. :D
