Well, she's had that bracelet for several months now, and kids grow so quickly! So it was getting a bit snug. I don't want to have a whole new bracelet engraved, so I took her in to the jeweler today to have a couple of links added. But the jeweler had a brilliant idea.
He had a stainless steel necklace chain with links similar in size to the bracelet we had. He sold the entire chain to me for $8. He took a short length of that chain and replaced the chain on her bracelet. I brought the rest of the chain home. Next time we need it lengthened, I can just take the long chain I bought, and he can add more links from it. As long as we don't need to change the actual wording on her bracelet, we can continue to add parts from this chain indefinitely! Here you can see the original bracelet chain on top. On bottom is the chain I just bought, minus the part he used to make her bracelet today.
So now we can make sure her bracelet fits her as she grows, and it cost me a total of $8 and change! (He didn't charge me anything for labor.) She's happy that her bracelet is no longer too snug, and it can easily be flipped over to read the back--but she can't get it off. What an easy fix!
Anyway, I thought this might help out other parents out there in the same situation!
