but my main problem is the soldering of the links to the plaque
itself. Should I cut the end links in half and solder them onto the
ends of the plaque [which is equal in gauge and width] or Is ther
another alternative to doing this?
My own medical ID bracelet has a semi-circular hole in each end,
which is part of its design. Through each hole is quite a thick,
oval, soldered jump ring. Each jump ring is then linked to the curb
chain. The two halves of curb chain are closed with a lobster clasp.
See the following link:
This shows the stainless steel version. I have the sterling silver
version where the design is a little more complex, but it’s still the
same design as the one in the link, with regard to construction.
I don’t know if that helps, but it shows another option.
