Chain identification


#1

I was asked to lengthen a necklace. Client wants the same (or
similar) for the extension. I do mainly bead work and chainmail so
stumped on even where to start… have wandered around Rio and others
but no luck on my end. Hope someone can help in identifying the weave
so i can then find a source for the chain. Width is just under 2mm.
Very delicate and light. Or a suggestion as a alternate would work as
well… Appreciate everyone’s help on this.

Whatever you do, it’ll be in the back under her hair. Looks like a
fairly cheap/commercial piece. I’d sell her on the idea that nobody
is going to see it anyway…

Go to the international organization of chail maille activities and
tutorials. http://www.ganoksin.com/gnkurl/cv

Read through their library of patterns and you may find the pattern
and directions for working it.

Or, hunt for someone who can analyze and perhaps do it for you. There
are many links for this. Talk with Spider at
http://www.ganoksin.com/gnkurl/cx

She is great, very helpful, and does custom work as well as
tutorials, supplies, etc.

Not looking to reproduce chain myself but to purchase either a bulk
chain or longer necklace to cut in half.

Piece has sentimental value… have already talked to client about
plan B which will be to remove clasp and add to both ends then
replace clasp so it is even.

However i just like the chain so would use it myself on a couple of
small pendents i have.

Appreciate everyone’s thoughts
