Today’s post continues to spotlight our amazing new chain selection (on sale now) with a feature on this fantastic fishbone chain. Coming in seven gorgeous colors, this funky chain is sure to add just the right about of edge to your jewelry design.

I decided to use the chain to whip up some simple pairs of earrings. Using basic jewelry making techniques, you can make several pairs in no time. I’ve worn the silver and black pair (pictured below) pretty much every day since I made them!

Fishbone Chain
Spike Charm

Earrings are one of my favorite quick and easy projects.  With just a few simple steps, a pair can be made for every day of the week.  Simple to construct, earrings are a piece of jewelry that can really make a statement.  The fishbone chain is so versatile and looks really stylish all on its own.  By adding beads or charms, you can really amp up your design.  The hammered finish on the links is a nice touch as well.  You can keep it simple by only using a few links of chain or you can really punch it by making a pair of shoulder-dusting earrings.

    Your store sells this chain by the foot, so if you use 20 links for the earrings about how much would you need to purchase for this project?

      LouAnn – You would need about 4 inches for the gold pair of earrings and about 3.5 for the silver.
