tHiCk Copper Rope Chain

Copper Rope Chain, originally uploaded by CraftyPease.

Hi all!
Fun, fun! Just figured out how to make my own jump rings AND how to make a rope chain! Took a little while to overcome the hurtles; the gauge I was first using was too thin. Not sure what gauge this is (going to find out at the local box store) but it worked much better. If I had to guess, I'd say 16, 18 gauge? I know my fingers hurt....

The links on this bracelet are very large (3/8-ish wide) and would look good on either a man OR woman. Flat out, it measures slightly over 8". As a continuous bracelet, it easily slips over my hand.

Eager to try another one!
