This is a chain I've produced for over 20 years, This a BYzantine style chain I made from scratch, fabricated in Sterling Silver. The first 3 pictures are of the finished piece. The 4th picture is of whats left of a 5 ounce coil of 16 gauge sterling wire. The last picture is of the coils I rolled up on a mandrel to specific diameter. The hard part and not the fun part for sure is cutting all the loops so that when assembled the ends match up when aligning jump ring ends.
This Silver chain is over 4 ounces, 26 inches long and fitted with Toggle clasp. This particular clasp allows you to decide how it hangs around your neck. If you chose to change the toggle to spring ring or Lobster clasp I can do that for you.
