These Chain Bracelets are an easy jewelry making project using any soft wire and beads.  Because of the way they are made they are very strong and permanent.  My strongest critic (my wife) thinks that this design is the best and most marketable bracelet design that I have done.  I like this design because it is both delicate and strong, two qualities that I like to incorporate in my jewelry. 

This jewelry design does require a little practice to get correct.  It is not difficult, but to make it perfect you will need to work on making these components without scratching the wire.  Use copper for the first three or four of this link that you make, then graduate to your good wire.
