Creation: Was used as an extender at the backs of several necklaces that I made.
"I purchased this chain to use as an extender at the back of necklaces. Though the chain is very pretty and of a nice quality, for me it would be too expensive to fabricate a full, chain necklace with. A necklace made entirely of this sterling chain would have to be reserved for high end jewelry or used in items that one is giving as a gift to someone special. However if used sparingly in small amounts, such as in earrings, a necklace extender, or just a small section of chain in a bracelet or necklace, the cost would be acceptable."
Pros: Size, Versatile, Unique, Ease of Use, Quality
Other beading styles or techniques: stringing
"I use this curb chain as a necklace extender as it's so easy to cut it to the length I need to make a perfect 18" necklace. I often get 16" beads but also want to made a bracelet. So combined with some spacer beads, I use a 1.5"-2" slice of chain on either side and I'm able to have a beautiful necklace as well as a matching bracelet."
Other beading styles or techniques: string, bead crochet, wire wrapping and more
Creation: Pearl & Marcasite Jewelry Set
"I've used this chain for extenders. I find it to be a nice quality and strong enough for any design. The price is a little higher than I would like, but it is sterling... I do use another chain too for extenders when I want something a little more delicate but also considering using this as a general chain for some other upcoming designs. It has a very nice sheen/shine. I definitely recommend for making your own extenders for most designs due to its strength and quality.

"I used this chain for necklace and bracelet extenders but I would have preferred it to be a little thicker. It is a nice looking chain but it is much thinner than it looks it the picture. I think it is too pricey."
"I was looking for sterling silver chain with big enough links to use as chain extenders. This fit the bill perfectly. Considering how expensive sterling silver is, this wasn't badly priced. I also love the fact that it's tarnish protected. The lobster clasp fits perfectly in this chain."
