I bought this from fM 'cause it looked pretty. Five feet of "lantern" chain. 4mm. Tiny holes. I need some creative ideas!
Can you knit or crochet?
You can try doing that on the chain, but with beads. Or some kind of bead weaving?
I can't see it very well, kinda blurry... So I'm just guessing.
Sorry...it's a cell phone pic. I'll try to get a better one when photobucket is working. I don't knit or crochet, but I'm always willing to learn :)
Fire Mountain has some ideas here: http://www.firemountaingems.com/resource_guide/resource_search.asp?kwsearch=lantern+chain&SearchPerformed=True
That's all I got, I don't use chain much :).
Great find, thank you!!
You can use pandahall beads to decorate it. Maybe it can make it more beautiful.
You can incorporate chain into circular brick stitches (and other stitches) like this

Oh! That is beautiful!! One of you ladies needs to teach me those stitches. I just can't seem to follow diagrams.....
That video (along with many others on different stitches) is available on our YouTube site. I've been avoiding posting links to things, but here is is if moderators allow it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2Ujf6ehkCc
That video explains getting the chain on, but not the beads. I guess I will explore :)
Oh sorry the bead part is in another video, and we went back and linked to it within the video and as a response.
