Who ever said that rings had to be made of metal? These Swarovski crystal oval rings are wonderfully eye-catching and playful – and they’re just begging to be made into chainmail.
This 18″ necklace project appeared on page 38 of the Spring 2011 issue of Wirework Magazine.
The large rings in this design are tricky to close cleanly with normal pliers. I encourage you to get two pair of duckbill pliers. Approach straight from the sides of the ring to give those bills their best grip. I use these crazy pliers on anything heavier than 14ga.
