I used machine cut stainless steel
0.048" 18swg wire

Step 1: Make a 5 segment 1-2-1-2-1 chain with the 18swg 1/8" and the 18swg 5/32" kinged on the same side.

Step 2: Flip the chain from step one. Connect the 16swg 5/16" link under the 5/32" and through the 1/8" links on the edge.

Step 3: Connect the 18swg 3/16" between the kinged links under the 5/32" and through the 1/8" links.

Step 4: Connect four 18swg 1/8" link around the 18swg 3/16" and 16swg 5/16" in a row at the bottom. At the top connect the two 16swg 3/16" to stabilize the other links.
