DescriptionTwo bracelets I made for my wife. The one on the left is Box chain, the one on the right is 6-in-1 Spiral. She likes the Spiral better.
Both are made from 18 gauge (0.0472" according to my micrometer) galvanized steel wound on a 1/4" mandrel. After springback, they seem to be 0.255" give or take a bit.
The Box rings were cut with a pair of nippers, while the Spiral rings were cut with an 0.028" Jeweler's saw. As a result the closures are much better in the Spiral bracelet, but the rings aren't quite round.
