This is a quick and easy design – make within a couple of hours using one piece of thread, eliminating the need to sew in the warps. TIP FROM CARON: “I have created a Mini Earring Loom for this design. Any small loom will suffice, or you can attach the chain to a bigger loom by using wire – similar to the method I have used here.” If you would like more information about the miniloom, please contact me via my website at www. caronmichelle.com.
