Intermediate Level

Japanese Cross & Polyhedron Earrings

by Rebeca Mojica


This was Rebeca's first published magazine project, back in 2007 in Step by Step Wire Jewelry! Since she designed these earrings, artisans have made and sold them all over the world.

Both earrings are constructed similarly, with one size adjustment plus a few extra rings in the Polyhedron. The pattern is almost easy enough to be beginning level, but we recommend having at least some chainmaille experience for best success.

Prerequisite: Proficiency in at least 2 chainmaille weaves.

These projects are also included in the eBook 10 Chain Maille Jewelry Designs.
