I'm trying to make a necklace. I did find some similar questions and attempted to copy the answers (e.g. put object origins at the same point in space, mess with array/curve axis settings, Edit mode -> N -> Transform -> Mean Radius = 1), but I can't seem to identify what's going on here... Unless maybe I used the wrong curve type, but the YouTube video I followed also used this circle. Help me out, please? Thanks!

(Also, a curious question: Is it done or would it be better to model half the necklace chain and add a mirror modifier?)

Actually your curve was rotated on the X axis, which makes the chain go crazy, so first apply the rotation (CtrlA):

then choose the right Deform Axis in the Curve modifier (-Y):

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, that was simple XD; I didn't realize the significance of applying (Ctrl+A for latecomers) scale, rotation, etc. until now. (Rotation was the thing I needed to apply, though it is kinda obvious from the image.) Thank you! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ yes because if the curve is rotated it makes the chain transformation go crazy, you can test it: once you've fixed the problem, select the curve and rotate it $\endgroup$
