I saw a chain that looked like loop in loop but had one, maybe two
pieces of wire w/ the ends balled up w/ a torch going through each
set of loops. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
I’ve seen one artist who uses that technique and the appearance was
that of “bones” set into the chain. I think her chain was a normal
but handmade cable chain (is that the right name for a normal link
chain?). I would expect that you could get different looks by
altering the scale of the chain, the wire gauge the “bones” are made
of and the length of the “bones”.
Also, the one I saw had the decoration just as a focal part of the
necklace. Adorning the whole chain would give a great look. A beggar
to polish though and I’d think you’d need a vibratory / rotary /
magnetic type polishing machine to accomplish such a task.
