I was wondering what size, gauge, soft, hard, etc. you would use to make a sterling silver chainmaille bracelet? Is there a standard and does that stand true for copper and bronze?
A variety of jumprings work for making chainmaille jewelry, but as a rule the heavier gauges (16, 18 and 20-gauges) of half-hard to hard wire work best to create sturdy connections. For project ideas, illustrated projects and books with in-depth information, check out the links below.
