This tutorial shows you how to make a simple figure of 8 chain that is ideal for using up all those little off cuts of 18 and 20 gauge wire. You can use round, half round or square wire, or a mixture to create a pattern in your chain. The links can be used on their own, as an alternative to jump rings as they are very strong, or connected together to form a chain This chain was born out of necessity, when one day having run out of pre-made chain and running low on wire, I turned to my scrap wire pile and came up with this. I am sure however that I am not the first to use this design.
