I enjoy making pendants but I am not very good at making handmade chain links for the necklace.  I often use just an ordinary chain. I hope I will do better now that I have been inspired by this tutorial from Teresa Kenard of Lily-Tree on Youtube

This wonderful British wire artist says she loves copper and it shows! She demonstrates how to make 3 kinds of links all made from wire. 

The beaded chains are easy to make from 19G and 16G wire.  They can be made to compliment handmade pendants. 

The third one requires quite thick wire - 12G. It's not really twisted but the ends are hammered such that the flat bits are at right angles to each other.  like how it is textured too. Neat!
