Default Tut For Handmade A Simple Chain

Hi to all

This is a tutorial for handmade a chain. It's simple, but it is very pretty, in Silver or Copper. Oxidized is beautiful.

Tips:

Wire 18 gauge, tough, not soft.
Pliers round and flat.

Pliers lined with sticky tape so they do not leave marks on the wire, as seen in the tut.

Pat, make a chain does not demand much time. The 18-gauge wire is not very hard.
Have you patience.

I am sorry. I was not very clear. What is the measurement of the first link that you make? How many inches? Thanks, Pat

Thank you very much Ana Maria. Best Christmas you've sent us.

Pat, the lenght of each link is up to you. Smaller links use smaller gauge of wires so it's easier for you to bend or make a loop. Does it help?
