How to use:
1. Open the file in ai, open the brush panel, pick a brush and draw. Or draw a shape first and then add the brush
2. For Mac: Copy the file into Applications >Adobe Illustrator CSx > Presets.localized > Brushes.localized. When you now open the brush panel and go to Open Brush Library and pick the file. (You can also open it from your desktop.)

This is a pattern brush, without corners (chains usually dont have corners ;)).

i made these brushes for an upcoming artwork of my main account ^pica-ae
they are based on the Create a Gold Chain Pattern Brush with Illustrator tutorial, that can be found atVectortuts+
that it is based on a tutorial is the main reason i submit this awesome brush as stock :B cos anyone can do it :w00t:
it's really not that hard, and you should try and make your own pattern brushes too :eyes:
they look different than in the tut, mainly cos i used a different reference image ;)
please enjoy, and let me know if you use them :) i would love to see what you make of it :heart:


The brush in use:
