Large Jewelry Wire Links Necklace Jewelry Making ProjectIn modern American parlance, what we have done here is to "super size" the links in a chain and make a necklace of these super-sized links.  The inspiration for this necklace is that we have seen several similar necklaces in magazines and on television.  In the necklace shown at right, we used two colors of wire in the links for the simple reason that the similar necklaces we've seen in magazines had multi-color links.  We don't actually suggest the color combination that we chose here.  In the necklaces that provided the inspiration, brightly colored links were mingled with silver colored links. 

Beads on our Large Jewelry Wire Links Necklace Jewelry Making ProjectThe next question that one must ask about any supersized jewelry making project like this is "Do you want beads with that?"  Of course the answer to this questions is yes, so later in our instructions, we will show how to add beads to the links in this necklace as shown at left. 

Finally, we used the same large loop link, with two different sizes of smaller links to make the bracelet shown below.  We connected the links in this bracelet with multiple figure 8 connectors.  We think that you will like this bracelet.  The instructions for the bracelet begin on page 4.
