Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge: Day 25

Fusion Beads' celebration of National Craft Month is well underway.  For the Day 25 challenge, we were asked to incorporate chain maille into a design.  I busted out Anne Mitchell's, "Chain Making Techniques" to help me in this endeavor.  While I use some chain maille techniques, I stick to the basics and use them sparingly.

This design is called, "Augmented X".  I dressed my version up by using a mix of shiny bronze jump rings and sterling silver ones.  To pull it together, I used a toggle from Nina Designs.

Missed most of the fun?  You can still creatively challenge yourself.  The Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge is something that can be done any time!  CLICK HERE to download a calendar.
