Beadlinx chain makes a wonderful foundation for a variety of jewelry designs. It's easy to use as-is because it features links with beads already attached. You can also have fun making your own links with other beads to intersperse throughout the chain. You can even take the beads from the chain and use them in new ways. Cheri does it all in this cute necklace. For more ideas about using chain in your jewelry, check out this Artbeads Cafe episode.

We had fun decorating these cable necklaces with cute pendants and beads. The simple style of the necklaces allows you to add all kinds of different looks. Each necklace comes already finished with a magnetic clasp, so you can create unforgettable style in minutes. We used a TierraCast pendant on one necklace for an eclectic look, a Vintaj feather on another to create a bohemian style, and then used Swarovski BeCharmed beads on our last necklace for a more glam take. What will you use with these fun necklaces?
