Beautiful and delicate, but kinks easily
January 14, 2014
I bought some of this chain in 1.2mm in different lengths to use with my handmade jewelry. So far I've had one breakage issue (the clasp) that I know of. This particular chain has been sitting in a drawer and minimally handled, yet it's got several kinked areas, and I have no idea how it happened. I showed it to a chain vendor at a local gem show looking for something similar (before it broke), and he said this was smaller than 1.2mm. On measuring with a micrometer, it does look closer to 1mm. I love the look of this chain, but I no longer feel comfortable selling it to customers in finished jewelry, it's too delicate.
Pros:Very pretty, feminine chain for a ball chain.
Cons:kinks easily, too delicate for normal handling in my opinion.
