I've been practicing making chain from cheap copper wire I got at the hardware store. I love how it is coming out, the weight and feel of it. But I am still perfecting my technique making the links. This I how it looks so far:
This is how the links look. I join them into the chain with two jump rings.

This no longer exists because after finishing it and admiring it for a couple days I decided I wasn't satisfied with it and took it apart. The first problem was that it was too long. When I was making the individual strands I forgot to account for the length of the closure, that I hadn't actually made yet, so I didn't know how long it would be.
The second problem was I didn't like how the center beaded link looked and decided to take it out completely.
And finally I decided I would rather use the handmade green bead chain in some other project instead of in this bracelet. But I learned a few more things along the way and that just makes the next project potentially better.
