Trizantine - Was the weave I was trying to discribe for you.
or maybe
6in1 Full Persian - If you want something more solid looking.

This is made from the size links as I was discussing (20guage 5/32"), but in sterling silver.

My usual supplier do 10k solid or 14k gold filled, but as mentioned, I'm sure I can source gold wire and make the links up myself if that would be prefered.

Wow.. excellent stuff.. yes please re trying to source the higher quality gold if possible, otherwise the 10 carat will do fine.
I'll have a look through the weaves with Luisa and get back to you :-)

Having done a bit of experimenting.
I've made up a small sample of the trizantine and having worked a bit with it, I'm not sure how usable it would be for this project.
I can join the ends of a 6in1 full persian chain, but I don't know if I could with the trizantine as it's a bit more fiddly.

Materials wise, is the 14k gold fill OK? Given that I'm not soldering the links, it would make the chain be more durable.
I figure materials cost, figuring 40 links per inch, and $30.55 per Oz and 429 links per Oz (http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=110&cat=Saw+Cut+Gold+Filled+14K+1%2F20) (20ga 5/32") at approx. $2.85/", not including shipping (that supplier is in Canada).
