Description

This handcrafted wallet chain is made from 14 gauge, galvanized steel, electric fence wire. I coil and cut the rings myself, then assemble them by hand over a period of time.

The length of the chain is 2 feet (24 inches), not including end clasps.

One end is a stainless trigger clip, ideally sized for attaching to belt loops. The other end is a stainless S-biner, ideal for wallets, and/or phone cases.

Is it stainless? No, it is galvanized. Stainless is harder and doesn't rust. Galvanized steel is surface treated steel with a zinc coating. This prevents it from rusting outright, BUT. If you get it wet (rain, sweat, spilled beverages) you will get a slight surface tarnish (imagine a chain link fence, out in the elements).

Now, with that said, is galvanized steel a bad choice? No, not at all. It just requires a little attention. If it gets wet, you can dry it before any tarnishing happens. A well-handled galvanized wallet chain will take on an almost polished, gunmetal gray surface sheen. And, of course, it is steel. Strong, and durable. It's far cheaper than stainless, yes, but that doesn't make it flimsy. It just makes it affordable.

End result? You take good care of this chain, don't go swimming with it, make sure you handle it frequently, and it will serve you well for many years.
