Hi, does anyone know where I can find this. I've checked the hardware stores and they don't have anything light enough. Thanks!

Bead/jewelry-making supply shops usually have a pretty good selection of lightweight chain. Have you tried one of those?

Drapery notions may be another place to look.

My fabric store carries those as standard notions. Did you check there instead of the hardware store?

I was looking around yesterday for just this thing and found these two sites with a Google search.

The websites selling chains are here

and here

The first site gives better data on the chain size. It lists width and length of each link.

It also gives number of links per inch, though you could figure that part out yourself.

I would also like to know weight per foot. Maybe they'd provide that info with an email request.
