MD11 The .5 Millimeter Difference

As I continued with the Foxtail chain I’ve been working on, I wasn’t very happy with it. The links were just tight enough in the pattern that there was very little flexibility in the resulting chain.

So today I took more 18 gauge sterling wire and made one coil of links that were half a millimeter larger just to see the difference. It’s perfect. I really like the way this is coming out, so I’ll make more tomorrow.
