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 :).

You can use pandahall beads to decorate it. Maybe it can make it more beautiful.Smile

You can incorporate chain into circular brick stitches (and other stitches) like this

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:

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.
