Pro Tip: How, when, and where a bracelet will be worn can determine the length. I have a small wrist and usually wear bracelets no larger than 6½". Because I wanted it to fall below the long sleeves of sweaters I wear in the winter and because of the bulk of all the embellishments on this bracelet, I went up to 7". If I were to wear this in the summer, I would have gone shorter.
Check the bracelet length when three or four links from the end of the chain. Add more links if needed.
If the gold links are too close to the heat when soldering, they can change color, even if using a barrier flux. It is better to remove a few than risk it. Use 1, 2, or 3 sets of one or two 3.5mm ID 18 gauge round wire jump rings to attach the "T-Bar," soldering the rings closed after each addition.
