For an economical way to add silver chain to your handmade jewelry, use silver plate bulk chain, sold by the spool or meter. Choose from over 90 options including everything from dainty cable chain and beading chain to chunky purse chain. Several styles of dangling charm chain are also available, plus beaded chain in two styles with several bead color options.
Silver plate will eventually tarnish just like solid silver does. Polish it to brighten it back to its original shine, but be gentle. Vigorous polishing can remove the silver plating and expose the base metal below.
Leather can contain hydrogen sulfide, which tarnishes silver and can lead to deterioration of silver plating. We recommend not using this jewelry chain with leather cord.
