This necklace looks lovely. Is it for beginner or is it hard to do.

Hi Roz! It's pretty simple, just cut your wire into the size you want your links to be and make an s shaped bend in both ends, open them as you would a jump ring and close snugly. Grip the whole link a few times w your flat pliers to work harden it, but as these links are not soldered, the chain is not up to being pulled or it will break. I just looked up making your own chain from wire on Google and you'll find actual instructions. Thanks.. It was a lot of fun to make something from scratch.. I hope you make your own too!
