Using smaller rings does make this pair of earrings more challenging. 4mm) Long project Doubled Mini Japanese Cross Earrings This variation uses additional tiny sterling silver rings (the same sizes as the tiny niobium rings) to link multiple crosses together. indd 47 Japanese Cross Bracelet You don’t have to stop at linking just two components together. Keep going until you have enough for a bracelet or even a necklace! 2mm) Take the Japanese Cross weave, vary the ring size slightly and fold the weave in on itself, and you’ve got a whole new look.
With a red ring, double the brown ring you added in Step 6 and close. The new ring goes through the same 8 small rings. To visualize where the next set of large rings go, it can be helpful to lay the piece ﬂat. Repeat Step 8 until you reach the end of your piece. The last set of large rings only go through 2 hanging rings from Row 1. At the end of your piece you should have 4 small hanging rings (2 from each row). You could attach the clasp directly onto the last set of rings from either row; however, the piece may look lopsided because the clasp is not centered.
The lime rings should alternate with the midnight blue rings within a single unit. The next “argyle sock” unit over will be a mirror image of the ﬁrst. This is how the zigzag effect is achieved. Add 2 lime rings (instead of 4) to the end unit. Stage 3: Weave the Outer Rows 6 Close 48 tiny inner rings (silver) and 44 tiny connector rings (for this pattern, also silver). Your ﬁrst ring will go through the ﬁrst 4 hanging rings, just like the regular Japanese Lace (see page 54, Step 6). With a new medium ring, scoop up 2 inner (silver) color rings and go through those ﬁrst 4 hanging rings.
