Figure 8 Link Solid Copper Chain, completely hand crafted from 18 gauge, jewelry grade copper wire. The necklace is 27 inches long, the necklace will lay about mid-chest level. The clasp is somewhat ornate The second variation is 25 inches long, made with 20 gauge wire and the clasp is handcrafted in simple loops. It is also made in the figure 8 style of links. Necklace is ideal for holding Pendants or as a simple copper necklace. The links are not soldered but capable of holding most large pendants without problem. It should be treated as you would any piece of fine jewelry. I will send a care and cleaning guide with the necklace.
