Select your length of 1.7mm oval cable chain in copper. Seldom do you find truly thin and delicate looking raw copper chain chain with soldered links. Copper plated lobster claw clasp. Small end of chain measures approximately 5mm so pendants with bail openings larger than that will fit on the chain.

The price of the chain varies with the length.

I also carry a wider version of this chain.

This is a raw copper chain. Copper is a reactive metal which will develop a patina over time due to moisture, an individual's body chemistry, salt air or pollution. This may happen quickly. Copper should not be worn in the shower, swimming or for sports. Copper's reactive qualities are desirable to many people who buy copper as therapy jewelry and who realize copper's anti-microbial properties. To brighten the chain you may dip it in a mild acid like white vinegar or lemon juice for a minute or two, rinse and buff.

If you are looking for an oxidized copper chain in this style, you may oxidize it by placing the chain in a sealed jar with one mashed boiled egg and warm water. Keep an eye on it until it reaches your desired results--usually overnight. The sulfur compound in the egg will hasten the oxidation that occurs naturally. The clasp and jump rings are treated copper and will remain bright.
