are you connecting a pendant to a beaded necklace? Are you
using one strand of beads? More than one strand?
OK, sorry, I asked for help without making the problem clear enough.
It doesn't seem very practical to try to provide an image, so I'll
try a little more description.
Yes, I'm trying to attach two separate strands to a pendant. For
design reasons, I want to attach the strands to, essentially, jump
rings (gold). I originally soldered 1mm snake chain to the jump
rings, but it stretched, leaving snake chain sticking out of the
beads, and it was darn hard to do even so. Then the snake chain
broke when a potential customer was trying the piece on. Not good!
I guess I'll order some beading chain and try to solder that on-- at
least I can connect it with little jump rings at the clasp, and it
If anybody has a better idea, or wisdom about why it might not work,
please let me know.
