This necklace uses the links as a focal for the design and also as a connection point for the dangling chain tassel below. The open design of the gear links allow for all kinds of creative uses.
We also love Cheri’s All Eyes on Me necklace, which features TierraCast Evil Eye links as stations between the chain. Cheri even made her own beaded links to space out between the chain. If you’ve been inspired by the episode and want to make your own links to use in the ways we’ve shown, making your own beaded links is easy with the 1-Step Looper pliers!
