Marley's chain is made up of everything he used to keep himself from caring about anyone else: the pursuit of money and property, being too busy with "business" to see those in need around him, the judgment of everyone and everything in terms of physical value, not emotional or spiritual value. They are represented by cash-boxes, money-purses, accounting ledgers, all large and made of steel and lead, dragging on him, weighing him down.
As Marley says, he made that chain himself while he was alive, by the choices he made and the paths he chose to walk, little realizing what a crushing burden it would be after his death.
