Making Silver Chains: Simple Techniques, Beautiful Designs
Showpieces as gorgeous as these marvelously individual silver chains could never be fashioned by machine! Best of all, with instructions that walk you through silvermaking techniques from soldering to pickling (which removes oxidation), most take less than a weekend to craft. Beginners can start with a simple trace design, the ideal first project; it familiarizes you with the fundamentals and the chance to flex your creative muscles. Switch from round to square wire, adapt the chain to a pendant, or use small oval links for a polished, sophisticated look. Transform trace chains into curb chains - which lie flat - with a twist to each link. Or try a range of other patterns, including the humorously named but remarkably beautiful 'Idiot's Delight' and distinctively round loop-in-loop pieces. As fabulous gifts or exquisite additions to your own wardrobe, these silver chains really sparkle and shine.
