This chain is sturdy. The links are closed, so they will not come apart when tugged on strongly. Makes a good base chain for a necklace. I also use it as an extender for bracelets and necklaces.
I love this chain...I have it in Gunmetal and Antique Brass and I wish I could find it in Sterling Silver or Silver Filled!
The antique brass patina is a beautiful color and even though it is made from 23g wire, this is not a delicate chain.
The flattened wire links make it sturdier than a typical 23g chain. The larger oval links are a good size for using this as a unique extender chain, but also sturdy enough to use as a necklace or bracelet.
This would be a good chain to use for a charm bracelet...the links would allow for a lot of charms to be attached and it is sturdy enough to hold the weight without being really bulky.
A great chain for many uses. Looks great with the antique brass plated charms I purchased from Artbeads.
