This chain is completely hand made using an ancient knitting technique and the resulting chain is then drawn through a series of ever diminishing sized holes to render the finished product. The chain measures 20.5 inches. It is made completely from Sterling silver and the diameter of the chain is 4.5 mm. Generally I would draw this chain through the smallest possible hole in the draw plate but I decided not to, since I had knitted a longer chain than usual Because I wanted a 20' chain. The result is highly flexible and springy and very comfortable to wear. I also chose a different termination than I have used on others, because I wanted the chain ends to be narrow to fit a wider variety of pendants. I love this chain for its versatility and it works well with larger pendants giving them balance. The chain is pictured with other works on this site to give you an idea of how it will look with your beautiful pendants.
