    I’m amazed! Never thought of PC links, but I sure like the effect. I’ve often wanted color in chain, and this works so well.

    Great idea! How does it wear? Does it have nice movement? I love the hand-wrought look!

    pgv72Patty….thank you! It has great movement, and unlike metal links…you don’t even know you have it on…very lightweight.
