The amount of work and attention to detail that making a Cuban chain like this is absurd, as you'll see on the video.
Here are the main steps to making the chain:
00:00 Mixing gold with other metals to make 14K gold. 00:22 Melting gold with torch and pouring into ingot mold to make bar. 01:17 Scanning bar with XRF Analyzer to show gold alloy details. 01:31 Stretching gold bar to form wire (includes annealing). 02:45 Forming and cutting the links for the chain. 04:09 Connecting and soldering links. 05:30 Twisting chain to align links. 07:18 Filing the links to give chain the characteristic flat look. 09:05 Polishing chain. 10:01 Attaching and welding last link of Cuban chain. 11:06 Final chain weigh in (approximately 1000 grams of 14K gold). 12:07 Finished chain!
