What's Up Buttercup!


A PDF chainmaille tutorial for a unique cup-shaped unit, great for large pendants, brooches and tree ornaments. Also included are instructions for a smaller version of the unit, perfect for earrings, pendants, bracelets, hair accessories and more.

Bonus! The original tutorial was written using Bright Aluminum rings. Instructions have been added for Stainless Steel for both the large and small units. Some ring sizes are different but the construction method is the same. An uncommon size is used for the large Stainless Steel unit, but a major supplier carries them and they are available.

The larger unit measures 2 1/4 inches across, has 7 petals and uses an 18mm Swarovski rivoli. The smaller unit measures 1 1/4 inches across, has 6 petals and uses an ss39 Swarovski rivoli.

This is an intermediate level tutorial.
