Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
October 30, 2010

Question:

I want to make a safe necklace for a child. On the one hand, I want it to stay together; on the other hand, I want it to come apart if it gets caught on a tree, door handle, or whatever. In other words, I don’t want her to choke. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks.

Answer:

The only thing I can think of that would work, would be to use a magnetic clasp on the necklace. It is my thought that if it were to become caught on something, the clasp would pull apart, thus releasing the child.

You can find such an item at your local craft/hobby store as well as in the craft area of some department stores, with the beads.
