Original Chain Weights: Unique & Chic

Here is a really neat solution for all you women out there who wear necklaces. Original Chain Weights is a company that has created a very unique, chic and innovative product.

Here is more about the creative designers:

Chain Weights came about after much complaining to my husband about the clasp of my necklaces constantly turning around on me – although it wasn’t too much effort to right the offending clasp it was still rather annoying. My husband, annoyed (ok, not really) at my constant complaining set about to fix the problem. That was the day that Chain Weights were born. An independent piece of jewelry that has its own clasp and hooks onto your clasp, jump ring or loop on the back of a necklace and helps to keep your clasp from slipping around to the front. Together my sister-in-law and I set about to make them a reality and here we are.

The perfect Chain Weight for the daintier pendant. This light weight Chain Weight is approximately 3 3/8" in length and just under 1/4" across. The bead is suspended from a silver tone chain and loop. The clasp is silver plated.

This is an absolute one-of-a kind piece, the Clara. Not only did this designer hand form and hammer the decorative part of the Chain Weight but they also hand formed and hammered the chain and hook. This piece is entirely made of copper, freshwater pearls and genuine apatite gemstone beads. The copper is not coated and will oxidize over time. Don't worry about the hook falling out of your clasp or jump ring in the back - it is quite secure.

From hook to tail the Chain Weight is just over 4 3/4" in length and is approximately 1 3/4" across from loop to swirl.

If you're constantly fidgeting with your necklace clasp, give Original Chain Weights a try! Head on over to their shop to see all of their many beautiful designs.
