Days of the Dead Chain

Working on a new Days of the Dead chain for Tommy, this one without the open mouths.  Usually I do the Days of the Dead with an alternating, rotating skulls, but this time we’re going for a more condensed, even look.

All the bits for making the chain

Making a chain is like meditation for me.  You can’t rush it and you take one link at a time, all the way to the end.


Once all of these links are closed up I’m going to solder them shut and buff them down.

Tommy and I are going to hash over some ideas for the clasp.  Usually I do a bone through a skulls mouth, but in the interest of keeping things sleek, I’m gonna find a lobster claw solution.   More to com e later.
