I need some recommendations from my blogger friends, please!

So, I want to start playing with chain in my pieces. What I want to avoid, is doing the same thing I did when I first started beading, which was waste a lot of money. For example, when I started beading I bought any wire, after playing for a while, I discovered, to make a nice piece, you really need to invest in a nice foundation, and after a lot of playing around I discovered SoftFlex.

Now I want to play with chain, and I don't want to waste my money buying the wrong stuff.  I want to be able to open the links, add beads, do stuff like that. So, probably want to buy it in a bulk roll so I can cut it to what ever length I want. I'm assuming that is the way to go.

So if anyone can give me some recommendations, tell me what you use or what you like, or what you think is a good versus bad product. Any suggestions, hints, help would be hugely appreciated!!!

Hope everyone is having a super creative day. (Hugs) to all.

Hi. Sorry, I know nothing about working with chain, really. But I'll be watching to see if you get any suggestions.

Oh I think we are all in the same boat. I haven't any idea what to use. I will keep looking for ideas. You could try asking Lori Anderson @ Pretty Things she might have a good idea.
