This chain is so lovely. It has a soft, delicate color and feel. It does require some special handling and care. I hadn't ever worked w/ it before, so it took some "nerve" to cut it and design with it the first time. I used Artbeads' tiny Satin Hamilton gold-plated crimp ends, and the tiniest spring rings I could find, gold-filled. I created this interchangeable necklace ... made the main part of the necklace out two 6" pieces of the satin Hamilton gold chain, with a small magnetic clasp, satin Hamilton gold crimp ends (4), and 2 small (4mm) spring rings. I can now make several interchangeable beaded pieces, using the spring rings on the chain sections to put on different focal sections! Several necklaces in one! When I STITCH a piece together, I use wire guardians on the ends, to hook the spring rings through, to protect my beading thread ends. When stringing onto wire, I simply make the wire loop ends large enough to put the spring ring through. Voil�!

very pretty color. of course you have to be careful working with this delicate chain, but looks awesome in a large necklace with floating pearls and swarovski beads
