This is Not Logical

Why does Handmade Chain even exist in today's world. Why go to this much trouble to create something, using so much time and materials when you don't have to?
Well, I feel like I have to. For one thing, it is my "reason for being" to create with nickel free materials, and to me, that means top to bottom, inside and out. Back when I first discovered that making chain was within my grasp, I knew I could offer something really unique. At this point in my little treatise, I could go into how you just don't find niobium chain anywhere - it's not sold commercially. I could go on about how nickel-free lovers everywhere have searched in vain for something they could wear that they can trust with their skin. Both of these things are true, and keep me interested in my work.

I find that when you've spent ridiculous amounts of time creating, even more ridiculous amounts of time learning about what and how to create, more time trying ideas and throwing them out, and an extravagant use of materials that might be better spent on items more likely to sell - Well, I think that's exactly when you might be on the verge of actual art.
So why not go for it? And for all the reasons I want to make it, I think you might want to wear it. It's just not completely logical.
