    For double gallery settings, a loop from one lower gallery to the next.

    https://www.google.com/search?client...a+tennis+chain. From what you say, you've already looked through here? Dennis.

    The tube set chain has the wires converted into D shaped jump rings, but the making requires super skill and patience.
    The four prong setting is possible if you get multiple units cast, with one jump ring on each. then you just cut the jump rings to open and connect, and re-solder them. Dennis.

    I took some grab shots of the one I worked on last week - they aren't pretty, they're just there for my notes.

    The clasp with the frozen pin in the hinge:

    My second picture shows four prong basket settings connected by jump rings. Is that not what you are after then? Dennis.

    There's a fair few ways of achieving the same effect. The bracelet I repaired has one end of the loop between the lower galleries fixed, the other moving (except that the other end in this case stopped moving, which is why it broke away).
