I have been making many Viking chains. Love it! But I use 22 ga
Sterling - don’t mind the tarnish - just toss them in the tumbler
and shiny bright! Or oxidized naturally!!!
One word of caution… I make the lengths of wire about 3 feet
long… the wire has a tendency to be springy. One time the end of
the wire sprung back in behind my glasses and cut the cornea. Very
painful…had to have a bit of tissue trimmed the next day at the
Dr’s. To be really safe it would be wise to wear safety glasses that
have the little side protectors. Going too far?
Keep on aweavin’
