That is the question, apparently. I’ve made a few of these sterling silver chokers now, forming each link by hand, soldering each one closed, finishing, adding a hand-forged hook clasp and polishing. The thing is, these links are very reminiscent of paperclips. Which is OK, because they also make a really nice necklace! I also wear mine doubled up as a nice, jangly bracelet. So….links or paperclips? You be the judge!
