DIY Ball Chain Jewelry Ideas

Ball chains are metal balls connected by short lengths of wire. Common uses of ball chains are for pull cords on light fixtures and ceiling fans, keychains and probably the most popular use, for dogtag chains.

You can easily cut a long ball chain. You can even use plain scissors to cut a long ball chain. At the end of a ball chain is a connector. Each end of the connector, a metal ball can be inserted which then will keep the chain secure at the ends.

The connectors do not need any tool to attach. They’re handy and reusable. Ball chains are inexpensive supply and are available in different sizes and color. You can buy ball chains in spools and per meter.
