1  Methods of connecting a strand of beads with precious metal chain? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by PeaceBlessingsandJoy on: May 01, 2012 03:21:32 AM
Hello my fellow crafting dolls,

It has been months since i worked on any jewelry projects and its time to stretch my legs and begin anew. My latest obsession is with making delicate bracelets...my goal is to make three more to add to the collection. I use 26 gauge half hard gold filled wire for most of my projects in addition to gold filled chain - see photo

Now here is my question. I would like to do a series of bracelets with half of it being a straight row of beads and the other half gold filled chain. I do not want to make beaded links (like with the hematite bracelet in the picture), but rather just a row of beads/stones. I am having trouble coming up with an idea to connect the two together. I do not want to use Nymo for this project . I do have a small amount of half hard gold filled wire on hand..but i am concerned about the metal bending/losing shape over time. Any ideas? HELP!
