    very pretty!
    Don’t strain your eyes – get a magnifier. I bought a very useful ‘pair of extra hands’ with 2 alligator clips (which I wrapped w/ tape) & a magnifying lens. Very useful when working w/ adding to fine-link chain. saw one last week at a good price at Harbor Freight tools…

    Thank you ladies! Eeka..thanks for that idea.
    I had a look on amazon,and it looks like a neat gadget. I already have a snazzy magnification lamp,but those helping hands sure would be great! I wear bifocals,so it’s a strain to get the right position for the lamp and the glasses.
    I probalby need to allow myself more wire and a bigger loop,so I don’t get so stressed. ;) Thanks again!

    Thank you, OP. I hope she likes it. It’s hard for me to think like a 17 year old. ;)

    You’re welcome, the design is classic and simple enough for her to wear now and later. I think it’s perfect for a 17 year old. I have nieces that age and they like their necklaces and bracelets both classic in appearance as well as funky. ;)
