Soldered Brass is a great choice for making base metal jewelry chain. Soldered Brass is used mainly because of it's strength, especially with smaller chains. Soldered Brass chains are made with brass wire and are soldered after the chain is made in a secondary process.
If the chain you are choosing is very small it sometimes makes sense to use a sterling silver or gold filled chain. The labor involved is the same for all, but with the sterling silver and gold filled chains you won't incur a plating cost and since the chain is so small the value of the precious metal is minimal.
Since 1967 Garlan has been one of the leading manufacturers of soldered brass jewelry chains sold wholesale in bulk by the foot or assembled to your specifications. Soldered Brass chains are one of the most popular materials that we offer.
