It’s been a lot of fun working on this series on all the different types of jewelry chain. I hope you’ve been enjoying it as well!

What I discovered while researching figure 8 chain is that it can be many many different things. There is a traditional understanding of what it is, a single link that has been twisted into a figure eight shape alternating with oval links.

However, just as there are many ways of making the shape of an eight, so there are many ways of making figure eight chain.

The fun thing about figure eight chain is that it adds a fancy, more decorative element to any chain, just by adding a twist.

Here are a few of my favorite places to purchase jewelry chain:

Looking more closely at all of these chains has gotten me excited for combining different elements together and creating my own unique styles of chain. That will be coming up in a future Friday findings video.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy the video and happy creating!

  1. Now that’s fascinating! Different chains with the same bead work would look very different. Am interested to see what you come up with!

    • Me, too! Haha Yes, it’s something I hadn’t really thought about into I started digging into all these different types of chain. Before that, I’d sort of taken chain for granted.
