Traveler Chain




Introduction: Traveler Chain

I travel a lot. In fact, during the the week I study in town and in the week-end I got back to my parent’s house. After a fight with my ultra heavy suitcase in the subway stairs, I decided  to find a way to reduce my stuff. I did get a lot of tricks and one of them is the traveler chain. It is one chain that can do a lot of style. In the next steps you will learn how to simply do yours.

Step 1: You Need

You need a plier for eyelet,a chain  wichyou can buy  at your art supplier, 2 rings and 2 spring ring Clasps (you can also use lobster claw style if you prefer this look)

Step 2: Open the Ring

Open the rings carefully to not deform the circular shape. Open it perpendicularly of the circle as showed in the picture. Do it for both rings.

Step 3: Insert the Clasps

In the ring insert the chain and the clasps  ,then close them. Do it both side of the chain. Now you have the chain, you can after add your own pendant.

Step 4: Do the Pendant

To make the yellow pendant I use 3 silver cabochon and I glued the flat beads with epoxy glue (you can also use superglue or crazy glue) after that I joined every cabochon with a small silver chain again with rings.
