I can judge this month's contest. But I have no idea on how 3d works. I just base my judgment on how well (ehem, pretty) it looks. hehehe.

@ZSG:

Make the handle about twice as long. Also the links need to be longer in one section to work right. They're like 'ovals' that interlock. They wouldn't function correctly if all sides are even.

Good start Zero.

What program are you using?

My suggestion is to be sure that you are using good references. Grab some good images off the net and just copy what you see!

You eyes will make the adjustments for you:

Once you have the main shapes down, you can start to add adjustments to make it more your own.

Of course, in matter of fact custom work is encouraged!

I was merely suggesting that even with custom work it has to be based in reality.

The work (mainly the silhouette) needs to stand on it's own before you start adding customizations.

That way when you do add the custom work to the main model it will have a element of realism to it. (If that makes sense.) 

Take a image of your model and then turn it all black. If you can tell what it is just by the silhouette you will know that you have done a good job!

Behold!
Is it not a thing of beauty!

Simplest thing I could think of. The whole see-through thing is going to be interesting to figure out though.

Pretty!

If you are using Maya, then you can just set the transparency for see-thru. I believe it's under special effects or you could just make a transparency map:

If you are using Max, then you can make a transparency material for see-thru:
