Love this chain and so happy to actually be able to see the links for adding beads and clasps.
040 Oval Link Sterling Silver Chain by the foot
This is a nice chain to make dainty projects. I like the daintiness of the chain but I only hang one medium size bead on this chain or about 3 4mm beads, as the chain is quite fine.
This chain is a good value on sale, but I wouldn't pay full price for it. The links are good sized, but I'm not sure they would hold up to anything heavy. The odd sized links are interesting to look at, and the size of the links would make a nice necklace. However, as I said, I'm not sure they're strong enough for heavy beads.
With all the sales Artbeads offers with the free shipping over @10.00 I am a frequent buyer.
Recently a "chain" sale was offered. I purchased sterling silver chain. With the sale I was able to buy chain that I would not usually buy.
The sale items I want are almost always in stock. The close up photos of the items make it easy to choose. The size in inches is also included so I can make sure a clasp will fit that chain.
I like ordered from a site that knows their customers rather than a mega bead store.
