    Default Safety Chain

    Some thing I have never had much to with until being swayed by the experts on this forum "Safety Chains" what is the accepted length or is it just what seems right at the time.

    I’ve never used them but suppose it has to allow the bracelet to still go over the hand and a necklace to go over the head as you have to be able to get both of them on and off. That’s my guess though

    Yep that is what I thought, just wondered if there was some unreasonably complicated equation. One of those family jobs where I should have pretended I was deaf, or hid behind the cupboard.

    If not deaf I’d have tried to talk them out of it unless of course it’s gold!

    HA! it is gold has enormous sentimental value, bracelet, the chain is basically worn out, if it was not so sentimental I would suggest melting it down and making something else from it I am the one who plays with such things so lucky me!

    I’ve just been looking at my antique jewellery and wondering if I wouldn’t be better stripping down the metal for scrap and making something new. I never wear it and don’t have anyone to leave it to so given metal prices just now that’s the way to go
