My chain broke when my 7 year old cousin pulled on it when he was piggy back ridding me. Ha Ha. Only took 20 min to do this. Very easy bit best to have nimble and dexterous fingers

My very new chain had broken a day after my birthday .. and the chain is very special so of course I was panicking trying to figure out how to fix it . I found this website and i fixed it within 10 minutes.

With the smaller necklaces, the broken link always falls off really easily, is there a way to make that easier to fix?
