Rope chains are formed from twisted strands similar in appearance to twisted corded, the strength is provided by solid links making a strong chain suitable for pendants, even those that exceed 3 grams in weight and pretty worn alone.
Rope Chain knots: due to the construction of rope chain links, these chains can 'knot 'and when they do so, the lump has the apprearance of being created by the links being soldered together, but this is not the case. The links have simply 'locked' into other links and they need to be freed. This has been known to happen on the delivery of a Rope chain where the movement during delivery has caused the links of the chain to be 'pushed back' into other links. It can also happen if a rope chain is dangled down and coiled onto a surface when the chain is removed after wearing. To free the links, simply place a finger and thumb both sides of the knot and wiggle the trapped links further into the knot 'to unlock them' and then 'snap' the chain by pulling backwards with both hands to free the locked links. Repeat until all the 'locked' linked are free. customers believe are unwearable.
To convert any charm to a pendant, a chain bail is required (65p+). The open jump ring supplied with charms are not suitable to retain a charm on a chain securely. Simply type 'bail' in the Quick Search.
