chain hack

Here is how I match up chain lengths for earrings. When I was first starting out, I would count out each loop, oh no, not anymore.

I'm going to use a headpin for this, but you can use anything that is straight and can fit through chain links.

First I cut the first length of chain that I want.

Time to cut my second piece.

Take your headpin and slide the uncut length of chain + the cut length.

Now just cut the other side to match. For the sake of the photo I have the piece lying down, but I usually hold it suspended to eyeball + cut.

Now it's time to make something (:
