Another option is to open the links in chains and attach them directly to the eyepins or jumprings. Plated chain works best for this design choice, as plated chains have links which can be opened and closed while precious metal chains are typically comprised of links which have been soldered closed and require being cut. Choose styles with large open links, such as silver-plated curb chain. The same chain is also available in gold-plate. Please be gentle when opening the links of plated chains. We recommend opening individual links in the same way as opening jumprings, to avoid cracking or loosening the plating.
