Was: Bracelet repair question
Having an open link on a necklace or bracelet is the same lousy
school teaching that we just can’t seem to pound out of existence.
Where that ever came from… Maybe just an excuse to be lazy, I
Always thought / been told this was a safety/repair issue. if chain
is pulled link opens and no one chokes.
Bead/pearl necklaces that are knotted and finished with a pearl
clasp have no open links.
So can we get to the bottom of this. It only takes a few seconds to
solder the link closed so it is no big deal.
Also the best catches are toggle clasps IMHO and there is no open
link on them. Many variations on this style.
A disk with a cut out for the T section allows room for makers
Quick and easy to make and easy to do up.
Have we been sold another urban myth?
Very interested to see what others think and use.
