Handmade Chain

As I pledged to try all different kinds of jewellery-making, I have now tried something very labourious - making a chain... link by link.

It is a great way to learn and practise all kinds of loops and work with jeweller's pliers, but I have to say that it takes a while to get all links the same size.

On the other hand, I can see the labour quite rewarding - although I still didn't produce any great chain that would be really worth parading around, I think that a handmade chain is definitely the best way to showcase a handmade ornament.
