CHAIN MAKING - Supply list for students
This is a fun workshop with a lot to learn. If you have any of the following
or wish to purchase your own metals the following list of metal is needed for
this workshop. You will need at least 3 feet of each for a good sampling. (more
metal will be needed to finish your pieces so you can order it all at once or
later. That is up to you.)If you have your own metalsmithing tools it is
nice to have your basic hand tools with you. Just be sure that you have them
marked, so that you will know what tools are yours.
We will be using 'dead soft' sterling wire in gauges:14 gauge Round wire
3 ft or more 16 gauge Round wire 3 ft or more 24 gauge Round wire 6 ft
'dead soft' fine silver in gauge:18 R wire 3ft or more
You can use copper or brass for some of these projects if you are cutting
cost but personally I would prefer to use finer metals. Also it is a good idea
to bring Scrap wire or string or bread ties to hold onto jump rings, i.e. to act
as a handle on your chains as you are working them.
