** HOWEVER please note if you would prefer a different mix for your 5 spools (such as: 3 silver + 2 gold, or all 5 brass, etc etc) that is totally fine, just write me a note during checkout letting me know how many of each color you want for your 5!
Each spool is 10 meters (32 feet) long and the same size. Description for all:
"Footage cable chain, 2.1mm. Approx. 2.1 x 2.7mm links. Perfect for making necklaces! This chain is very thin and delicate looking, very pretty. Soldered links. The links are rather small, so you will need approximately 20g or smaller jumprings/pins/wire."
This chain is LEAD FREE, however it may contain small amounts of nickel.
HOW YOU SAVE:
To buy all 5 spools separately from my shop: $93.50 + $6.50 shipping (US) = $100.00
This lot: $85.00 + $5.00 shipping = $90.00 = savings of 10%!
Quantity: 5 Spools (10 Meters [32 Feet] each)
**I have more spools available, if interested contact me!
**Making necklaces? Get my lobster clasps (available in every color exactly matching) with this chain and save on shipping:
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THIS CHAIN:
*CONTINUITY: As I use this chain myself for my own jewelry creations, there are some things about it that I have noticed over time that I wanted to make sure all of my buyers were aware of. One thing is that this chain is not always in one continuous 32-foot section. You will always receive 32-feet of chain, but sometimes there will be a break or two throughout the spool that is being held together with a jumpring that may or may not match the color of your spool. These breaks should be pretty noticeable. Not all spools will have this, but some spools will have 1 or even 2 breaks. As I only use around 10-20 inches at a time, this has never been a problem for me, but in case anyone out there was hoping to use a continuous 32-foot section, I wanted to put this out there.
*TARNISHING: Another note is about tarnishing. All plated chain from ANY manufacturer will eventually tarnish over time. Tarnishing will be quickened by exposure to air, water, and prolonged contact with skin/sweat. As far as I can tell, my chain is no better or worse in regards to length of time before tarnish than any other chain on the market. In my experience, I have never seen a tarnishing issue with the antiqued brass, antiqued copper, or gunmetal colors. Tarnishing with my silver plated chain has only been minimal, and only appears after much much time left exposed to the elements. Also, as the base is steel, which is a darker silver in color, tarnishing with the silver plated chain is not easily noticed. The most apparent case of tarnishing is with gold plated chain. I have noticed this not only with my chain, but with other gold plated jewelry I have bought in my personal life. Over a course of perhaps 4-6 weeks of heavy wear, gold plated chain will develop a noticeable tarnish. This is something you as a jeweler should be aware of, and something you should make your customers aware of as well to avoid confusion over the chain's quality down the road. Gold plated chain, in my humble opinion, should only be used for costume jewelry - you do not want to use this metal if you are planning on making an heirloom piece to last through time, because the color simply will not stand up to it.
I hope that helps you all! Happy creating!!
